The Silver Bullet to Expose Dimpled Chad and Vote Fraud.
Subject: RUSH, You can DO IT!
Here is a very simple experiment that would show the whole country that dimpled chads are forensic evidence of voter fraud.
Call a press conference and on live TV perform a ballot experiment. The news people are swarming around Florida and would come.
A voting machine
2. About 100 blank ballot cards clearly marked VOID.
3. A small hammer.
4. A small nail with the point filed flat.
Part A. Use the voting machine and try to make a dimpled chad on a SINGLE ballot. It can't be done. It either punches completely through or nothing.
Part B. Take a stack of cards about 100 thick and place the nail over a hole and tap it through the cards until it will go no farther. The top cards will be clearly punched. The bottom cards will be dimpled. Show the dimpled cards on the TV camera. Let them zoom in close.
This simple experiment would put an end to the dimpled chad count and the vote fraud.

Summary of how the votes were altered in Florida
Robert Cook has done an excellent study inferring how the vote stealing took place. It is very complete and difficult to follow, but can be summarized as follows:
1. Beforehand the perpetrators knew that the large number of double punched ballots would be questioned and they started the voter confusion campaign as a cover-up.
2. Votes were gained for Gore and canceled for Bush and Buchanan by punching out a Gore chad in stacks of ballots and in blank (protest) ballots.
3. Close examination of double punched ballots should reveal irregular Gore holes in double punched Bush + Gore or Buchanan + Gore ballots. This is forensic evidence of tampering!
4. Tampered Republican ballots with Bush + Gore votes would have the rest of the ballot showing votes mostly for Republican in the other Federal and Local races.
5. The preponderance of double punched votes occurred only for the presidential race and nearly ALL of the double punched ballots had ONE hole punched for Gore. A truly random process would have just as many double punched holes for other candidates.
6. In a nut-shell, here is how it works. The perpetrator(s) take a stack of the ballots and tap a small nail through the lined-up Gore holes. (They are gored.) Then here are the results:
|Original Ballot||Original Status||Ballot after being "Gored"||Ballot Status after being "Gored"|
|Gore||1 Voter for Gore||Gore||1 Vote for Gore|
|Bush||1 Vote for Bush||Bush + Gore||Disqualified 1 Vote less for Bush|
|Buchanan||1 Vote for Buchanan||Buchanan + Gore||Disqualified 1 Vote less for Buchanan|
|Blank (protest vote)||Disqualified||Gore||1 NEW Vote for Gore|
After reading this summary, go to Robert Cook's excellent detective article. No one said that the perpetrators who steal elections are stupid!!! If they had selected a few thousand more ballots to alter, Florida would have quietly gone for Gore and no one would have been the wiser. The perpetrators were clever, but they didn't accurately forecast the Large BUSH Vote!

abcNEWS Missing Voting Mechanism Recovered First you need the tool, a Vote-A-Matic voting machine to do the job.
How the Democrats almost stole the election. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY How the tool was used to alter the ballots: You can't merely add vote cards punched for Gore, that would be too obvious. What you need is to disqualify ballots punched for Bush. You setup the machine to punch for Gore and run a number of ballots through it. If it is already a Gore vote, no change. If it is a Bush vote it comes out a "double punched ballot" and is disqualified removing a vote for Bush.

A Clear Difference Exposed
Between Bush & Gore
Presidential Debate of Oct. 3, 2000
For those who believe there is not a dime's worth of
difference between Bush and Gore.
Here is the difference that will be most important of all in preserving the Constitution and our Freedoms.
What kind of appointments should they expect from you,
Vice President Gore?
Both of us use similar language to reach an exactly
opposite outcome. I don't favor litmus tests, but I know that there
are ways to assess how a potential justice interprets the
Constitution. And, in my view, the Constitution ought to be
interpreted as a document that grows with our country and our
And in my opinion, Gore would appoint Judges who will somehow see that the Second Amendment only applies to the militia.

If guns cause crime, then saxophones cause adultery, rape, perjury, and treason!
"A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights do not Give us rights. Rather they prevents the government from taking away inalienable God given rights that all law abiding US citizens are born with. This Scholarly Analysis of the Second Amendment is worth reading, but will mean nothing to those closed minded people who have a "religious like belief" than guns are bad and should be banned. For a person with that belief, logic, no matter how eloquent and accurate, has no meaning. For reference, here is the U.S. Constitution, including all of the amendments and the dates they were passed. Framing the Bill of Rights.

1. "Corrupt the young, get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness.
2. Get control of all means of publicity and thereby:
3. Get the peoples' mind off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays, and other trivialities.
4. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
5. Destroy the peoples faith in their natural leaders by holding up the latter to ridicule, contempt and obloquy.
6. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
7. Encourage government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear with rising prices, inflation and general discontent.
8. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders and foster a soft and lenient attitude on the part of the government towards such disorders.
9. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.
10. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with the view of confiscating them and leaving the population defenseless." ~ Vladimir Ilich Lenin

Law Suits Off Target, Benefits Of Gun Ownership Exceed The Costs
For Immediate Release Tuesday, March 23, 1999

Gun Law Suits Off Target,
Benefits Of Gun Ownership Exceed The Costs
For Immediate Release Tuesday, March 23, 1999
Dallas - Despite a number of law suits filed against the gun industry, making similar arguments to the ones used successfully against the tobacco companies, a groundbreaking study by the National Center for Policy Analysis concludes that, unlike tobacco, the benefits of gun ownership exceed the cost. "Cities have it backwards; guns are used more often by law-abiding citizens to prevent crimes than they are used to commit crimes," says H. Sterling Burnett, a policy analyst with the NCPA and author of the study.
"Reduced to a matter of dollars and cents, the savings to cities from defensive gun uses dwarf the cost of gun violence." According to the study, citizens use guns in self-defense about 2.5 million times each year. Violent crimes are prevented often by merely showing the weapon. For example: Women faced with assault are 2.5 times less likely to suffer serious injury if they respond with a firearm rather than try to defend themselves with a less effective weapon or offer no resistance. Only one-fifth of victims of violent crimes who defended themselves with firearms suffered injury, compared to almost half who defended themselves using other types of weapons or who had no weapon.
About 3,000 criminals are lawfully killed each year by armed civilians - that's more than three times the number killed by police. As many as 17,000 additional criminals are wounded by civilians each year.
The study for the first time also analyzes the short term and the long term financial benefit to communities from defensive gun use:
Using assumptions most favorable to gun opponents, the benefit from defensive gun use ranges from $90.7 million to $3.5 billion, every year. Using more credible assumptions, the net benefit from guns ranges from $1 billion to $38.8 billion per year.
Furthermore according to the study, the suits create bad law. One reason the overall rate of serious crime in the U.S. is at a 20-year low is that since 1987, 22 states have passed concealed carry laws. "There is no evidence that widespread gun-ownership increases crime," Burnett said. "In fact communities that have liberalized their gun laws have seen a marked drop in violent crime."
To receive a copy of the study, contact the NCPA at 972-386-6272 or in Washington, D.C. at 202-628-6671. You can also download a copy of the study or view a delayed broadcast of a press conference releasing the study, online at NCPA.
The National Center for Policy Analysis is a public policy research institute founded in 1983 and internationally known for its studies on public policy issues. The NCPA is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with an office in Washington, D.C.

"Mr. Clinton, sir, America did not trust you with our health care system. America did not trust you with gays in the military. We did not trust you with our 21-year-old daughters, and we sure......

125th Annual NRA Members Banquet
April 20th, 1996
If you want to feel the warm breath of freedom on your neck... If you want to touch the pulse of liberty that beat in our founding fathers, you may do so through the majesty of the Second Amendment.
Because there, in that wooden stock and blued steel, there lies what give the most common of men the most uncommon of freedoms. When ordinary hands are free to own this extraordinary symbol, representing the full measure of human dignity and liberty, that is as good as you can have it.
It doesn't matter whether its purpose is to defend our shores or your front door.. whether it is a rite of passage for a young man, or a tool of survival for a young woman.. whether it brings meat for the table or trophies for the shelf.. without respect to age, or gender, or race, or class, the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms connects us all -- with all that is right.
And to those who say the Second Amendment doesn't mean what we say it means, let's settle that right now. The purpose of every line of the Bill of Rights was to protect the people from the state. Our founders refused to ratify a Constitution that didn't protect individual liberties. They were just a bunch of old, dead white guys, but they invented this country, and they meant what they said. The Second Amendment isn't about the National Guard or the police or any other government entity. It is about law-abiding, private U.S., citizens. Period.

Quotes on Taxes
Republicans believe every day is 4th of July, but Democrats believe every day is April 15.
We don't have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven't taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.
Welfare's purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for its own existence.
[G]overnment's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
Government is the people's business and every man, woman and child becomes a shareholder with the first penny of tax paid.

More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws
John R. Lott, Jr.
University of Chicago Press
Does allowing people to own or carry guns deter violent crime? Or does it cause more citizens to harm each other? Wherever people happen to fall along the ideological spectrum, their answers are all too often founded upon mere impressionistic and anecdotal evidence. In this direct challenge to conventional wisdom, legal scholar John Lott presents the most rigorously comprehensive data analysis ever done on crime. In this timely and provocative work he comes to a startling conclusion: More Guns Mean Less Crime. Articles by Professor John Lott, Jr. is a site that has some of John's article on the web.
Here is a short interview with the author John R. Lott, Jr.
"John Lott documents how far 'politically correct' vested interests are willing to go to denigrate anyone who dares disagree with them. Lott has done us all a service by his thorough, thoughtful scholarly approach to a highly controversial issue."-Milton Friedman

Carry Laws SAFE
April 9, 1999
Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff
The first studies are coming in on the impact of liberalized concealed
weapons laws -- common in most Southern states -- and the results are far from
what the anti-gun crowd expected.
According to Jonathan Rauch in National Journal, less than 5 percent of a state's population applies for permits, but the perception that more people are carrying hidden firearms has cut down on the amount of violent crime.
The gun-control lobby predicted just the opposite: that communities would turn into Dodge City shootouts.
People who are willing to register with the sheriff, pay a fee and take a gun safety course -- all requirements before being allowed to "pack heat" -- are actually among the most law-abiding citizens in the nation, reports Rauch. Their record of handling concealed firearms are better than that of off-duty police.
In Florida, for instance, only 0.13 percent of concealed-carry licenses were revoked from 1987-97 for criminal or wrongful use. Rauch turned up no evidence that anyone was murdered by a licensed carrier.
Moreover, he notes, looser concealed weapons laws actually deter bad behavior, since carriers can lose their permits if they get into trouble.
It seems to us more states ought to liberalize their concealed carry laws. In any event, a policy that encourages good citizenship, responsible use of firearms and helps curb crime deserves to be praised, not condemned.
and see how many lives have been saved!

A Tribute to Rush Limbaugh
THE FIRST TIME.... I retired from LLNL in 1990 and on my first weekend of retirement, I found Rush Limbaugh on the radio. He was talking about sending bus tickets to the homeless so they could move to Charley Sheen's home town of Malibu, CA. I think the mayor called in objecting, but it sounded like a good idea and I was hooked on Rush. The wife and I had worked hard and only had time for the evening news and were brain washed by the liberal news media. In the first 6 months of listening to Rush, we both learned more about politics than we had learned up to that time. I was beginning to understand what was going on in Washington and I could explain the difference between a Conservative and a Liberal. I had been a Conservative all the while, but hadn't really had time to think about politics with the clarity that Rush was using daily.
POLITICAL EDUCATION.... Rush was explaining "Baseline Budgeting", "Hillary's Health Care Plan", "Women farding in cars", "Newt's Contract with America", and all facets of politics. He was on a roll and I was becoming able to talk politics with anyone. My Dad is a long time Republican and I sent him the Limbaugh Letter for his birthday and he was extremely happy to read it and he also started listening to Rush.
RUSH AS A FRIEND.... Rush talks about things that he is interested in and he tells us what he thinks about them and there is an openness to his personality that is refreshing. In the process, listeners begin to know Rush as a friend. I have the feeling that it would be fun to sit down and chat with him just as if he were on old friend that was over for a visit. His confidence in what he says is reassuring and his empathy for understanding how other people feel about various human conditions is obvious to the dedicated listener.
THE NEW LISTENER.... It is his empathy for new listeners that makes him over explain certain details about each subject. He realizes there are new listeners all the time and he does not want them to feel like they have to be an insider to understand what is going on. For someone who listens most of the time, it gets a bit tedious, but for the new listener it is a blessing. Rush is reassuring Conservatives and converting Liberals and "Never-had-time-to-think-about-it" types into Conservatives. Many of the listeners have told Rush that when they first started listening, they didn't like him and his arrogance, but after a bit, they changed their view and the arrogance really turned out to be Rush's confidence in his views. When a person speaks confidently and logically, the listener is drawn into deeper thinking about the issue.
A STUDENT OF LOGIC.... Rush tells about his early years and sitting at his father's knee when he was discussing legal issues with other lawyers. What little Rush was doing, was learning logic and the art of debate at an early age. He was like a Tiger Woods, but his game was logic instead of golf. I like Rush's statement to his mom. She would tell him to eat all the food on his plate because people in China were starving. He ate all the food and then when he finished, he asked his mom if that had helped any of the people in China. My mom told me eat all my food because there were starving people in the world, but I did not challenge the logic of the argument like Rush did.
TWENTY MILLION LISTENERS.... Clinton called a Talk Radio Show, not the EIB, and complained that after 3 hours of Rush each day, there was no "truth detector". This was clear evidence that Rush was making inroads on the tight grip the Liberals had on their support and media spin. Clinton even went so far as to blame Talk Radio for OKC Bombing. I believe he even named G. Gordon Liddy by name. After Janet Reno was attacked in a congressional hearing by Conyers and Clinton jokingly claimed that 'Rush only stood up for her because he was a white guy', I remember Rush's apology to Clinton and it was very powerful. Rush could not, even jokingly, accept being called a racists and remain silent! In my view, getting the attacks from the Clinton administration was ample evidence that Rush was effective in what he was doing and redoubled my eagerness to listen to every program. Twenty Million listeners is a pretty good indication that people are getting information from Rush. That many people would not be attracted to idle chatter. I remember the day Rush said that he was "Going to support Clinton's election campaign". Remember that? It was a rouse to show how important honesty was. Then someone called in and questioned Rush as to why he was going to vote for Clinton. Rush claimed he had said nothing of the kind and that he was younger then and had never said that. People were so upset with him in one hour that they were calling up and canceling their subscriptions to the Limbaugh Letter, going to quit listening, and ready to hang up on him. All he had done was tell a minor Clinton type lie but people expected more because they had built a trust in Rush's honesty! They were expecting more from Rush than most (by the polls) expect from the president.
LAUGHING OUT LOUD.... The funniest time I remember was when he had a rule that to talk on the phone, women had to have a picture on file so that he could see who he was talking to. Rush was getting lots of pictures and really having fun and also getting many more women to call the program, which was his intent all along. Well, he had played "Tiptoeing Through the Tulips", by Tiny Tim for an environmental theme and someone claimed that he should get Tiny Tim's approval on using the song. While I was listening to this, I was on a Mule Deer hunt up in Oregon. I had a tiny AM radio with an earplug in one ear and was listening. I had just climbed out on a rock ledge overlooking a large area and was planning to observe for deer for the next hour or so. I was going to eat an apple, relax, hunt, and listen to Rush. Well, Tiny Tim was on the phone and Rush was talking to him about the song. Then Rush said that he needed a picture of Tiny Tim so that he could talk to him and Tiny Tim said he would Fax him one. I burst out laughing out loud. Rush was making fun of Tiny Tim and all the listeners knew, but Tiny Tim was oblivious of what was going on. It ruined the hunting spot, and I had to move on, still chuckling a bit.
DOWNSIDE.... Sometimes, Rush lets Liberals talk too long and after they have repeated themselves and start personally attacking Rush, I do talk back to the radio and tell Rush to "Get that Liberal A**H*** off the air". After you have heard a few of them and how they operate on feelings, without facts, and then start personal attacks, you would probably get impatient too.
FOUND FREE REPUBLIC.... I heard "Peter the Lawyer" (Peter Mulhern who now has the Washington-Weekly.com site) the first time he was on Rush and then when he called the second time, Rush said that the transcript of the first call was on the Free Republic Web Site. It only took a few minutes to find the transcript on the site, but what was even more important, there was a list of discussions about what Peter had said. It was wonderful to know that there are so many other conservatives out there. It is thought provoking to read what these good people think without a liberal filter being applied by the news media. Each weekday morning I listen to Rush and surf the Free Republic. Free Republic and Rush is an awesome combo!
HOW CAN YOU FIND RUSH ON THE RADIO.... Click on Official Rush Limbaugh Web Site to find out what stations have Rush in your area or listen online. Don't judge Rush by what someone says about him, including even me. Here is the Rush Limbaugh Hometown Web Page that has a lot of fun cartoons and articles. Listening to a few programs is the only way to find out what Rush is all about.... Dittos from Varmint Al
HAVING TROUBLE HEARING RUSH?.... Here is an antenna that allows you to hear Rush in low signal areas. The Select-A-Tenna is still the most powerful and durable of AM antennas. Invented, developed and manufactured by three Wisconsin engineers, the Select-A-Tenna is a highly sensitive AM radio antenna that requires no connection to your radio. It uses no batteries or external AC power source of any kind. It works great to hear Rush in low signal areas.

EXPOSES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE POWER GRAB
Rep. Bob Barr's Office
WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Representative Bob Barr (GA-7) released today information exposing an effort by the Department of Justice to obtain massive new enforcement powers in the closing days of the 105th Congress. Barr obtained the information from a confidential source within federal law enforcement. Among other things, the Department's "wish list" for new authority includes (among others):
* A vastly expanded definition of terrorism to include domestic crimes having no relationship to terrorism.
* The power to seize commercial transportation assets for federal use.
* The ability to commander personnel from other federal agencies without reimbursement.
* Expanded wiretap authority to allow "roving" wiretaps, and wiretaps without any court authority.
* Enlarged asset forfeiture provisions to allow the FBI to seize personal property in both criminal and civil matters.
* The establishment of a permanent "FBI Police Force."
* Loosening of Posse Comitatus restrictions to allow more military involvement in domestic law enforcement.
* Authority to force telephone and Internet companies to divulge information on their customers.
"These requests belong in some bizarre conspiracy novel, not in serious legislative documents being circulated at the top levels of federal law enforcement. These proposals represent a sneak attack on the most cherished principles of our democracy. If they become a part of our law, freedom and privacy in America will be permanently and severely diminished," said Barr.
Barr also noted the Department and the FBI are "shopping" this wish list in an effort to get the items placed in a spending measure without hearings or debate. For additional information please visit our website at http://www.house.gov/barr
Some Very Important Quotes from the Past to the Present
"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution
itself. They are the American peoples liberty teeth and keystone under
independence...From the hour the pilgrims landed, to the present day, events,
occurrences, and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security, and happiness,
the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable...The very atmosphere of firearms
everywhere restrains evil interference-they deserve a place of honor with all
that is good." - George Washington
"On every question of construction (of the constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit of the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." - Thomas Jefferson
"The constitution shall never be construed...to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."-Alexander Hamilton
"The whole of the Bill (of rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large and considered as individuals....It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has the right to deprive them of." Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society Oct. 7, 1789
"arms in the hands of citizens [may] be used at individual discretion...in private self-defense." - John Adams
"The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun." - Patrick Henry
"No free man shall ever be disbarred the use of arms." - Thomas Jefferson
"The best that we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." - Alexander Hamilton
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." - James Madison
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." - Thomas Jefferson
"The constitution of most of the states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of the press." - Thomas Jefferson
"Last Monday a string of amendments were presented to the lower house; these altogether respect personal liberty..." Sen. William Greyson of Virginia in a letter to Patrick Henry
"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops...." - Noah Webster
"As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms." - Tench Cox in Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution"
"The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the general government; but the best security of that right is... the military spirit, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States....Such men form the best barrier to the Liberties of America." Gazette of the United States, Oct. 14, 1789
"This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future!" - Adolph Hitler, 15 April 1935, in an address to the Reichstag. It could be that this quote is a loose translation. See the next quote for the intent. Check The AFU and Urban Legend Archive Hitler Gun Control for nit picking and a diversionary white wash. Arguing about the exact words and ignoring the subsequent history is foolish.
"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected peoples to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non ["something essential" lit. "without which not"] for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police." - Adolph Hitler, Edict of March 18, 1938
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government
has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals,
one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes
impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
- Ayn Rand
"This bill needs to pass. This is a huge problem, the police don't have a chance, and the people don't live in safety." - Clinton, lobbying for Crime Bill, 1994
"People sometimes need to sacrifice individual rights for public safety." - Clinton, lobbying for warrantless police search & seizures in public-housing, 1994
"No government really rooted in limited, parliamentary democracy should have the power to make its citizens fight and kill and die in a war they may oppose, a war which even possibly may be wrong, a war which, in any case, does not involve immediately the peace and freedom of the nation." Clinton in a letter to Colonel Eugene Holmes, 3 December 1969
"If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees." (Clinton, 8-12-1993)
"The purpose of government is to rein in the rights of the people." (Clinton on "MTV" 1993)
"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" (Clinton to the nation Jan 1998)
"We always talk about the NRA -- the NRA has been powerful not only because they have a lot of money, but because they can influence people who vote. And in that culture, people believe everybody should be personally responsible for their actions; if you just punish people who do wrong more harshly, fewer people will do wrong; and everybody tells me I've got a constitutional right to keep and bear arms, so don't fool with me; and every reasonable restriction is just the camel's nose in the tent, and pretty soon they'll come after my shotgun, and I'll miss the next duck hunting season." (Clinton Remarks on Gun Control Legislation 27 April 1999)
"Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn't matter if you have to distort the facts or even lie. Our task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed." --Sarah Brady (In a letter to Senator Howard Metzenbaum, The National Educator, January 1994, page 3)
"When people kill us, they should be killed in greater numbers. I believe in killing people who try to hurt you." - BILL CLINTON - George Stephanopoulos book All Too Human.
"I'd like to kill all of these sons of bitches and just be done with it!" - BILL CLINTON - White House staff meeting during impeachment.
"Write down the name of that motherfu**er. When I'm back in office, he's a dead man." - BILL CLINTON - Arkansas second campaign for governor to a campaign aide.
"I can do any God***ned thing I want. I'm President of the United States. I take care of my friends and I fu** with my enemies. That's the way it is. Anybody who doesn't like it can take a hike." - BILL CLINTON - White House staff meeting regarding the IRS going after Kenneth Starr.
"I hereby resign the Presidency of the United States effective at 1:00PM today...." (Clinton, Soon I hope!)
SUMMARY.... The House managers won the battle. The Senators lost the war. Even the most biased polls are reporting that 86% of American people believe the President committed the crimes of perjury and obstruction of justice. This is something the Senate, fearing retaliation and blinded by self importance, could not see.

Judicial Watch Filegate Deposition
of Linda Tripp. Dec 14, 1998
about the 976 FBI Files in the White House
View the list of the 967 FBI File Names
Or here is an ASCII text file of the 976 Names.
Q (Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch): Did you subsequently understand those files to concern FBI files?
A (Linda Tripp): Well, it was the same stacks, literally, of files with very little exception or at least not discernible exception that Betsy Pond later referred to as FBI files many months later.
Q (Klayman): She pointed to those files and said those are FBI files?
A (Tripp): Mm-hmm. That was during the conversation in which she identified them, yes.
Q (Klayman): Was that during the same conversation where she told you she was loading them on to computers?
(Ms. Shapiro FBI Attorney): Objection to form.
A (Tripp): No, that was a separate conversation.
Q (Klayman): Now, were there files strewn all over Kennedy's office when you would go in there?
(Shapiro): Objection. Form.
A (Tripp): No.
Q (Klayman): Where were these files located that he was shaking his head about?
A (Tripp): Everywhere in stacks.
Q (Klayman): What do you mean by "everywhere"?
A (Tripp): He had a large office, and Old EOB offices are rather roomy, and they were everywhere. You had to -- there are -- the desk was in the middle of the office facing the doorway in a sense across from the mantel and the fireplace surround, and I don't recall his desk being significantly cluttered one way or another. It was not like Vince's desk, certainly, or like Bernie's desk, but it looked like a work desk. But the stacks were what caught one's eye.
Q (Klayman): Were they stacked up on a table?
A (Tripp): Yes, and on the floor, and I didn't know how they didn't fall.
Q (Klayman): How high were the stacks?
A (Tripp): Relatively high. For instance, I would stand in front of his desk when I would speak to him, and some of the files were hip high. I'm five-eight and he's five-ten, so do the math.
Q (Klayman): How many stacks were there at any given point in time, generally?
A (Tripp): I never counted them. A lot. My impression of Bill Kennedy's office from that day forward never changed, and that was that he was the keeper of more files than I'd ever seen in my life, which is why when the FBI issue -- excuse me, FBI file issue became a public issue I was surprised at the number that seemed to be associated with the file issue because it seemed so very many more than 900, if those in fact were the FBI files.
Q (Klayman): In other words, what you saw in Kennedy's office when you worked in the White House counsel's office were many more than the 900 that were reported to have been the FBI files that came over to The White House?
(Shapiro): Objection. Form.
A (Tripp): That was my impression. I didn't count them but it seemed so to me.
