There are blood feuds which already disgorged the majority of their scarlet corpuscles. Then there are blood feuds just beginning to gush their essence. Yup, it’s time to discuss Edward Klein’s book “Blood Feud: The Clintons v. the Obamas.”
Edward Klein’s long history of imagined Hillary Clinton conversations with Bill, imagined conversations about Hillary and Bill, imagined conversations about imagined conversations, are so comic and badly rendered they more properly belong in a Nelson Eddy/Jeanette McDonald operetta or an early Joan Collins melodrama. Some of Edward Klein’s “facts” are equally comic.
Did you know Hillary has “a right transverse venous thrombosis“? Her thyroid is shot as is her heart. In short, Hillary Clinton is falling apart according to Edward Klein. If Hillary Clinton decides to run for president in 2016 her medical records will be revealed and Klein’s reportage on Hillary’s health will be confirmed or repudiated – so we won’t worry about Klein’s reports as to Hillary’s health.
Less likely to be settled, ever, are other Edward Klein “revelations” about Hillary. Did you know Hillary did not shave her legs during her university years which to Klein is indicative of lesbianism? Did you even know that Hillary is a lesbian having affairs with other lesbians – although we never can figure out how she made time for lesbianism what with all her wild sexual cavorting with the murdered Vince Foster? Did you also know that lesbian Hillary refused Bill Clinton access to her lesbian parts so Bill raped her and that is how Chelsea was produced?
For all that rubbish, Edward Klein is still more believable in his latest book than most of Big Media.
Edward Klein is possibly performing a public service with his latest book. Perhaps, because of Klein, some on the right will consider that they fail to beat Hillary and Bill Clinton because their basic premises about Hillary and Bill Clinton are wrong. Some on the right want to prevent a lucid analysis of Hillary and Bill Clinton and are afraid of Edward Klein’s new book:
However, the broader purpose of the book is to show that there is a heated battle going on — dating back to the brutal primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election cycle — that continues to manifest itself in various ways as we move towards the 2016 presidential election. [snip]
Word of caution to readers: “Blood Feud” according to Klein is based on dozens and dozens of interviews with those close to the Clinton and Obama camps, none of which of course are sourced. Further worth noting is that the book almost universally portrays the Obamas in a negative light, which by comparison makes the Clintons, despite their ruthlessness and apparent lust for political power, seem almost universally sympathetic.
The facts, as reported by Hillary Hater Edward Klein, portray Hillary and Bill Clinton as “almost universally sympathetic” so ‘ignore the facts’ advise the thought leaders on the right.
As deranged as the Sunni Right is, the Shiitty Left is even worse. Both extremes have been denying facts and distorting reality. Those on the Right have an imperative interest to tie Hillary to Barack Obama. Tie Hillary Clinton 2016 to the despised, distrusted, disgusting, Barack Obama and Republicans win in 2016,
Those on the Left likewise have a survival instinct to tie Hillary to Barack Obama. Indeed, The New Republic claims that Hillary Clinton 2016 is invincible because Hillary wooed and has won the crackpot left of the party. However what explains the loony left’s new found support of Hillary Clinton is that Hillary can save Barack Obama from becoming only an historical pimple on the body politic. If Barack Obama gets a third term called Hillary Clinton 2016 then the loony left won’t feel as defeated and stupid for their elevation of Obama.
On both sides of the political spectrum there is an interest to tie Hillary Clinton to that loser who currently occupies the White House. But for a long time we have been reporting what Edward Klein is reporting in his new book:
Any doubts about the accuracy of our many reports (list of links HERE) on the secret and sometimes not so secret war by Barack Obama against Hillary Clinton should have been completely dispelled this week.
“Kerry’s moves are part of the long war Barack Obama is secretly waging against Hillary Clinton which we have outlined (See, Barack Obama At War With Hillary Clinton (And Thank You Andrew Breitbart), and Mark Halperin’s Book – Harry Reid’s Negro Macaca, Barack Obama’s War On Hillary Clinton, Part I, and Mark Halperin’s Book – Harry Reid’s Negro Macaca, Barack Obama’s War On Hillary Clinton, Part II, and Mark Halperin’s Book – Harry Reid’s Negro Macaca, Barack Obama’s War On Hillary Clinton, Part III, and Obama At War With Hillary Clinton And General McChrystal (The New Shinseki), and Going… Going… Gone).”
All the while Big Media and blowhard drunks kept assuring us that Hillary loves Barack and Barack loves Hillary. But we reported what we were told.
On Benghazi we repeatedly declared that not only were Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at war but we also stated that Benghazi was an issue that deserves great scrutiny and a select committee. We also asserted repeatedly and without evidence we could discuss, that yes, indeed, Hillary Clinton would come out “smelling like a rose” from the entire Benghazi mess.
On September 30th of 2012 we wrote before anyone else “People Died, Obama Lied”. We stated we want a full and complete investigation of all these matters – NOW – before the election even as we declared Hillary Clinton would come out “smelling like a rose.”
In Where’s Benghazi Now? we noted that the main question on Benghazi is still why there was no special alarm around the world for any and all American facilities on the anniversary of 9/11? We explained why Susan Rice, not Hillary Clinton went on the Sunday talk shows and we again asserted that Hillary Clinton would come out “smelling like a rose.”
Indeed, Republicans have been in “clover” watching Hillary versus Barack on Benghazi. We still insisted that Hillary would come out of all this “smelling like a rose.”
Little did we know that a renown Hillary Hater par excellance would confirm much of our reporting even as he put a spin on the reasons for what Hillary and Bill did:
Bill and Hillary then apparently played out various scenarios, including Hillary potentially resigning over what had occurred. They ruled this out however in part because her State Department was providing cover for the CIA in terms of what operations were taking place in Benghazi, in addition to the fact that her resignation could hurt Obama’s chances for reelection which might destroy Hillary’s own political future.
Edward Klein who edited the New York Times Magazine for many years as well as the foreign affairs section of Newsweek is spraying rose scented perfume all over Hillary:
A new book claims President Obama instructed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to blame the Benghazi terror attack on a protest over an anti-Islam film, over Clinton’s objections.
The anecdote is included in the book “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” by Edward Klein. An excerpt was published Sunday in The New York Post. Klein reported that, according to an unnamed Clinton legal adviser, Obama called the secretary of State late on the night of Sept. 11, 2012.
“Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” the source reportedly said. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.”
According to Klein, Clinton advised Obama that the story “isn’t credible,” but Obama nevertheless told Clinton to put out a State Department release. According to Klein, Bill Clinton also told his wife “that story won’t hold up.”
The State Department did put out a statement the night of Sept. 11 that cited “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
Clinton herself never has publicly claimed she was pressured into citing the faulty video explanation.
Author Ken Timmerman, who reported on the same phone call in his book “Dark Forces: The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi,” on Monday cast doubt on the latest version of events — he called this account a “desperate ploy to defend her presidential aspirations.”
Timmerman claimed the “story” about the video was not “created” on the Obama-Clinton phone call. Rather, he said, “I think that’s where they agreed on the story between the two of them.”
In an interview with Fox News last week, however, Clinton did indicate she had personal doubts about that narrative at the time. [snip]
“My own assessment careened from the video had something to do with it, the video had nothing to do with it — it may have affected some people, it didn’t affect other people,” she said in the interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren.
Clinton added: “There’s no doubt terrorists were involved.”
Who to believe? Right wing Ken Timmerman or right wing Edward Klein? It’s an important question and one we have stated is key to understanding what happened post Benghazi. Our reports before Edward Klein’s book are congruent with what Edward Klein reports.
Bret Baier asked Hillary the question we think is so important and that so much depends on. Hillary seemingly implicated herself in the interview.
Unfortunately, the answer as to when the State Department release blaming the video went out, is not definitive and Bret Baier did not follow up with the necessary questions about who wrote the release and whether anyone from the Obama White House instructed as to what the release should say. Trey Gowdy will no doubt ask the right follow-up questions.
On September 11 2012 Hillary Clinton was on the phone to all the top military and intelligence officials. Then Obama late at night called Hillary. When was the call?
WH: Obama Called Hillary on Night of Benghazi Attack–More Than Six Hours After It Started
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama called Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at approximately 10 p.m. on the night of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told CNSNews.com.
That was more than six hours after the attacks started, more than an hour before Tryone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed–and about the time that Clinton first released a statement linking the attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a reference to an anti-Muslim video on YouTube. [snip]
Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, told the Senate Armed Services Committee they first notified the president of the attack during a Sept. 11, 2012 meeting that began at 5 p.m. and ran for about 30 minutes. They also told the committee they did not talk to Obama or anyone else at the White House after that meeting.
But when was the call? Was the call before the State Department press statement? Or was the call after the State Department press release? Was the State Department forced by the White House to concoct an improbable story? Did Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama conjure a pack of lies together in order to protect the C.I.A. or to protect the Obama presidential campaign? Did Barack Obama call Hillary Clinton in order to force her to release a statement she did not want to release? Trey Gowdy may borrow our list of questions.
There have been many attempts by many to get these questions answered with precision. According to ace reporter Sharyl Attkisson the State Department immediately knew that Benghazi was a terrorist attack and not a Rotten Tomatoes critical film review:
Internal Emails: State Dept. Immediately Attributed Benghazi Attacks to Terrorist Group
A newly-released government email indicates that within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya; the State Department had already concluded with certainty that the Islamic militia terrorist group Ansar al Sharia was to blame. [snip]
The email is entitled “Libya update from Beth Jones. ” Jones was then-Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton. According to the email, Jones spoke to Libya’s Ambassador at
9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 following the attacks.
“When [the Libyan Ambassador] said his government suspected that former Qaddafi regime elements carried out the attacks, I told him the group that conducted the attacks—Ansar Al Sharia—is affiliated with Islamic extremists,” Jones reports in the email.
There is no uncertainty assigned to the assessment, which does not mention a video or a protest. [snip]
Another State Department email sent at 5:55pm on Tues. Sept. 11, 2012, while the attacks were underway, includes a report that “the extremist group Ansar Al Sharia has taken credit for the attack in Benghazi” and that U.S. officials asked the offices of the [Libyan] President and [Prime Minister] to pursue Ansar al Sharia.”
So the State Deparmtnt knew immediately, as any sensible person informed of an attack on an American installation on any September 11 would, that Benghazi was a terrorist attack but then issued a statement blaming a video. Who does this benefit? Does it benefit Hillary Clinton in any way? Quite the contrary. Does it benefit Barack Obama two months before the election? You bet your sweet ass it does:
Clinton bristled at Benghazi deception [snip]
She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run.
If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.
“Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.”
This adviser continued: “Hillary told Obama, ‘Mr. President, that story isn’t credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11.’ But the president was adamant. He said, ‘Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.’”
After her conversation with the president, Hillary called Bill Clinton, who was at his penthouse apartment in the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, and told him what Obama wanted her to do.
“I’m sick about it,” she said, according to the legal adviser, who was filled in on the conversation.
“That story won’t hold up,” Bill said. “I know,” Hillary said. “I told the president that.” “It’s an impossible story,” Bill said. “I can’t believe the president is claiming it wasn’t terrorism. Then again, maybe I can. It looks like Obama isn’t going to allow anyone to say that terrorism has occurred on his watch.”
Hillary’s legal adviser provided further detail: “During their phone call, Bill started playing with various doomsday scenarios, up to and including the idea that Hillary consider resigning as secretary of state over the issue. But both he and Hillary quickly agreed that resigning wasn’t a realistic option.
Mocking clowns will no doubt rage that Hillary Clinton did not resign in protest. But laughing clowns do not have to consider what it would mean to the country to have Obama unfettered without any responsible power centers challenging him at every turn. Belay that. We now know what is is like to have an Obama unfettered by Hillary Clinton and/or Leon Panetta. Have you noticed what has happened to the country now that those two are no longer restraints on Obama’s treacheries and booberies?
Now do you see why we wrote:
That’s it baby. That’s what Gowdy must focus on and filter out the noise. The Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack on September 11 for which Barack Obama was completely unprepared. Focus on why the White House did not anticipate and prepare for September 11 attacks. Focus on why there was no special phone number for at risk embassies or American installations to call if and when trouble arose on September 11.
Police detectives know that in any crime search for a motive. Who had the motive to lie? Whose election was two months away? Of course for those who ain’t buying the obvious, for those who chose to ignore all our reports well before the Edward Klein book published there’s this for them to explain away too:
The feud between the Obamas and ‘Hildebeest’
In his new book, “Blood Feud,” journalist Edward Klein gets inside the dysfunctional, jealous relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama — and how it could explode in 2016.
Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other.
“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign.
The feeling is mutual. Obama made excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.
On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. [snip]
Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed “Hildebeest,” after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti.
The animosity came to a head in the run-up to the 2012 election, when Obama’s inner circle insisted he needed the former president’s support to win. Obama finally telephoned Bill Clinton in September 2011 and invited him out for a round of golf. [snip]
“I really can’t stand the way Obama always seems to be hectoring when he talks to me,” Clinton added, according to someone who was present at the gathering and spoke on the condition of anonymity. [snip]
“Bill got into it right away,” said a Clinton family friend. “He told Obama, ‘Hillary and I are gearing up for a run in 2016.’ He said Hillary would be ‘the most qualified, most experienced candidate, perhaps in history.’ His reference to Hillary’s experience made Obama wince, since it was clearly a shot at his lack of experience when he ran for president.
“And so Bill continued to talk about Hillary’s qualifications . . . and the coming campaign in 2016. But Barack didn’t bite. He changed the subject several times. Then suddenly, Barack said something that took Bill by complete surprise. He said, ‘You know, Michelle would make a great presidential candidate, too.’
“Bill was speechless.” [snip]
Bill Clinton would go on to campaign for Obama in 2012, but he felt betrayed when the president seemed to waver when it came to a 2016 endorsement of Hillary. Obama attempted to smooth things over with a joint “60 Minutes” interview with Hillary, and later a private dinner for the two couples at the White House. [snip]
Lately, Bill Clinton has become convinced that Obama won’t endorse Hillary in 2016. During a gathering at Whitehaven, guests overheard Bill talking to his daughter Chelsea about whether the president would back Joe Biden.
“Recently, I’ve been hearing a different scenario from state committeemen,” Clinton said. “They say he’s looking for a candidate who’s just like him. Someone relatively unknown. Someone with a fresh face.
“He’s convinced himself he’s been a brilliant president, and wants to clone himself — to find his Mini-Me.
“He’s hunting for someone to succeed him, and he believes the American people don’t want to vote for someone who’s been around for a long time. He thinks that your mother and I are what he calls ‘so 20th century.’ He’s looking for another Barack Obama.”
For a long time Big Media has been selling the story that Bill and Michelle and Barack and Hillary are just great pals. Mostly alone we laughed and declared that alliance as believable as the Michael Jackson Lisa Marie Presley kiss.
You can believe Big Media narratives about Hillary Clinton and the Team of Rivals friendship palsy walsy nonsense. Or, you can believe there is a blood feud between the Clintons and the dastard Obamas. We’ll side with our reports and if that means for now we are on the side of Edward Klein, so be it.
