Where Was The `Change' During The Clintons' First Two Terms?--Part 12

In their current campaign to secure a third term in the White House, in violation of the spirit of the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (which limits U.S. Establishment politicians who become the U.S. president to two terms in office), the Clintons are claiming that a third Clinton Administration in Washington, D.C. will bring democratic political “change” to U.S. society. Yet as the following historical column item from Downtown indicates, when Bill Clinton was the U.S. President during the 1990s the Clintons failed to bring democratic political change to U.S. society:

525 Days After The Clintons’ Inauguration: Where’s The Change?

The U.S. and British Establishment’s U.S. Commander-In-Chief—Bill “Oxford” Clinton—has been making more re-election campaign speeches in Europe lately—in preparation for possibly another escalation in Pentagon military intervention in Asia or the Caribbean. Yet 525 days after the Clintons’ inauguration, the former Washington, D.C. student government politico has still not appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the CIA’s possible role in the elimination of JFK and RFK, as we approach [in 1994] the 30th anniversary of the Warren Commission’s release of its “official report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.”

Like another former student government politico—the now-deceased former NSA President Allard Lowenstein—Bill Clinton was apparently able to avoid participation in U.S. military intervention in Asia due to his special U.S. government connections.

According to The Pied Piper by Richard Cummings, “throughout the NSA’s relationship with the CIA, it was standard practice for NSA officials who cooperated with the CIA to be given draft deferments,” “the documents on which the extract of Lowenstein’s classification record is based have been destroyed by the Selective Service System” and “Lowenstein chose to conceal his true draft status and the CIA had every reason to get him a deferment.”

One of the U.S. government connections whose staff apparently helped Bill Clinton get permission to ignore two orders to report for induction while he attended Oxford, was former Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright—who “is mentioned in a Whitewater-related criminal referral that alleges he received $50,000 in diverted savings and loan funds in 1985,” according to the Associated Press (5/27/94)

Perhaps it’s time to consider holding a 1990s love-in outside the Big Media studios until U.S. radicals are finally granted free speech rights?
