The Right Wing Conspiracy
Mrs. Hillary Clinton believes that attacks on her husband are the product of
some ?vast right wing conspiracy?. She has announced this on NBC?s the
?Today? show. Many people believe that Hillary went a little overboard when she
used the term ?Conspiracy?. These people believe that there is an attack Clinton
coalition, but no conspiracy. Mrs. Clinton was portrayed as a forceful defender of
her husband against allegations of a presidential affair. The Clinton
Administration believes that there are a few powerful people behind this coalition,
but haven?t been able to prove it.
One of the leaders of this coalition is the NY Post. The Post long ago
forfeited any outward appearance of either ?loyal opposition? or ?responsible
journalism? as far as the president is concerned. The Post has announced that it
will report the news as they see fit, and they will not change their way of delivering
the news. Federal Officials find this to be highly offensive to the President. Rupert
Murdoch, who is owner of the NY Post, controls the publications of his newspaper
very closely. If he doesn?t like the article he changes it so it meets his standards.
Murdoch also owns the Weekly Standard. The Weekly Standard is considered to
be a polemical journal. His influence has also begun to taint this journal as well.
Murdoch also moved the editor of the Weekly Standard, John Podhoretz, to take
over the editorial page of the NY Post. The change in content became very rough
concerning the President and Extramarital relationships. Now for the final loop on
the Post, John Podhoretz is the son of Norman Podhoretz who is editor of the
Commentary. This a monthly gazette published for the American Jewish
Committee. He is a leading NeoCon, which is a Jewish organization and closet
right wing polemicist. So the NY Post is considered first on the list of suspects.
Another of the ?conspirators? against President Clinton is Ken Starr.
Hillary believes that his judgment had been tainted by politics. She said of him,
?We get a politically motivated prosecutor who is allied with the right wing
opponents of my husband who has literally spent four years looking at every
telephone call we?ve made, every check we?ve ever written, scratching for dirt,
intimidating witnesses, doing everything possible to try to make some accusation
against my husband.? Starr quickly denounced Hillary?s ?Conspiracy? theory as
utter nonsense, and said he was conducting the case ?through a deliberative
process? (Blood). At this time in the investigation Clinton was still denying
having any sexual relations with 24-year-old intern Monica Lewinsky, or even
telling her to lie about the affair.
The Conspiracy is actually rumored to have started in 1968 when Bill
Clinton was considering joining the military for the Vietnam War. Some extremists
even believe that the conspiracy was the reason he was not drafted for Vietnam
and the reason he took a scholarship to Rhodes College in England. From that
point the Conspiracy was said to have grown considerably especially after his
election as governor of Arkansas. The Conspiracy is also credited, by some, for
starting the Whitewater scandal. This is believed to have happened because some
members of the Conspiracy learned that the Clinton?s were in bad debt. In fact, as
the rumor goes, the Clinton?s were even talking about selling their daughter,
Chelsea, for $10,000 to an Iranian business owner (Rojas). It is also believed, that
the Conspiracy planted Gennifer Flowers to purposely have an affair with Clinton.
As everyone knows it worked and Clinton even lied about the affair on 60 minutes
which even furthered the Conspiracy?s goals. This was the start of the
Conspiracy?s tainted goals. It is also thought that the Conspiracy hired an
Arkansas state trooper to take Paula Jones to the Excelsior Hotel. There she
supposedly forced Bill into an affair. Then Monica Lewinsky, who it is found
shouldn?t have even been at the White House, was found to have performed Oral
sex on the President. People say that it was the Conspiracy that moved Monica
from her job at the Pentagon to the White House, thus causing this affair.
The Conspiracy?s party of origin is, of course, the Republican party.
However, the Right Wing Conspiracy also has the problem of fighting the Left
Wing Conspiracy, which is Democrats opposition to the Right Wing Conspiracy.
It is actually quite complicated how these two groups got started. The main
explanation of why the Right Wing Conspiracy started was while Bill Clinton was
in grade school he and a boy were playing on the seesaw. While they were doing
this Bill gave the other child, name is unknown, a ?cherry bump? the other child
was so sad he ran home and told his mom he would give Bill an even bigger
?cherry bump?. This is how the Right Wing Conspiracy started (Janson). The
Left Wing Conspiracy didn?t start until Bill was in High School. The founder of
the Right Wing Conspiracy and Bill got into a fight about a test, and a guy in the
class separated them. It was then he learned about the other guy?s wish for Bill to
be brought down so in order to contain the growing organization, Right Wing
Conspiracy he started a pro-Clinton organization named the Left Wing Conspiracy.
This is one of the rumors circulating on how these Conspiracies started. Many
people believe this to be a highly, very highly, fabricated story.
Another rumor on how the conspiracies started is a lot less complicated.
When Bill was elected governor of Arkansas. There was a minority of the people
who hated his platform on which he ran. So they created the Right Wing
Conspiracy to try to throw him out of government. When attacks on Clinton
became clear, Bill then asked for a couple of his close friends to lead an
organization to try to stop this rowdy group. Thus, the forming of the Left Wing
The Clinton?s have been accused of a great and many things during their
time in government and politics. People have accused them of adultery, sexual
harassment, robbery, rape, even prostitution, and murder. The murder charge is
the one that has the Clintons so upset. This accusation stems from the death of
White House aide Vince Foster who died in July of 1993. This is after
government investigation ended abruptly with the search team saying he shot
himself. However, people find that interesting considering that Clinton himself
told the investigation team to do their search within 2 weeks. The prostitution
accusation was directed directly at Chelsea. As the story goes, they say that while
away at college Chelsea needed some money for books, and didn?t want to have to
ask her parents so she took up prostitution to pay off the fees for her books. After a
thorough investigation it was proven that she was not guilty of this offense. Many
people blame the Conspiracy for trying to plant evidence that doesn?t exist or point
the finger at the Clinton family trying so hard to destroy the tie that binds them
together. A very strong rumor is that all the jokes on Clinton with his so called
?Zippergate? scandal have come from the Conspiracy.
For all it?s hard work the Conspiracy can still be considered a shadow in life
the government. For so far all they have worked to accomplish has been achieved
but all they have done is just cause some minor inconveniences to the Clinton
Administration. But, for all the Conspiracy, there is hope for there is talk of an
Armageddon Conspiracy. It is rumored to be the ultimate attack against Clinton.
It is rumored that this attack will encompass more than half of the continent, not
just the United States.
The people of the United States opinions? are as varied as each and every
single grain of sand. A small majority believe there is no conspiracy, however,
more and more people are beginning to believe that the Conspiracy is climbing the
rungs of the ladder of destruction. If the Conspiracy gets high enough on this
ladder then it could achieve it?s ultimate goal. This goal, of course, is the complete
destruction of Bill Clinton?s life, socially, politically, and economically. In the
words of Jim Coil, ?The Government is indeed the people. Just too often it
happens to be the wrong people.? This is an opinion of a man who believes that
the Conspiracy does exist. When his words are analyzed a great deal of meanings
are shown. This statement means that he agrees the United States is a government
for where the people choose who they want for office, however, he just thinks that
too many people?s minds are tainted by the influence of corrupt politics in this
day and age. As from the voice of Oscar Amara, ?This fine, upstanding, pure,
Godfearing, faithful husband, and wonderful President gets caught in one little itsy
bitsy lie and there is this hoard of evil prosecutors chasing him down like some
kind of criminal. Next thing you know, these Right Wing Conspirators will be
accusing him of all kinds of crimes… like murder.? This man believes that the
Right Wing Conspiracy should take all the blame. However, all of this mess
cannot be blamed on the Right Wing Conspiracy itself. For even if they did plant
evidence, or Monica Lewinsky, or Gennifer Flowers, or etc. it still doesn?t take
away the fact the he had an affair. Here is a comment from Paul L. Hepperla, ?I
remain the pessimist in this matter, declaring that Clinton gets away while the
?Right Wing Conspiracy? is blamed for all of the President?s problems.?
The Right Wing Conspiracy is alive and well. It grows everyday, following
the steps of the President. The Conspiracy?s deepest wishes lie in their ability to
manipulate and control. As has been indicated if they unleash their almighty
?Armageddon Conspiracy? then all that the President, William Jefferson Clinton,
will have accomplished will be for naught. With the Left Wing Conspiracy to
protect the President the Right Wingers will be at a disadvantage to bring him
down. However, the Left Wing Conspiracy doesn?t have as much heart as the
Right Wing Conspiracy. One final thought if you were the victim of a conspiracy
would you have taken the path of Clinton? It really doesn?t matter, because in the
end it all goes back to same the place anyway.
