Democratic establishment is pulling out the big guns in an all
out effort to prevent Rand Paul from becoming a Kentucky senator
this November by dispatching former president Bill Clinton to
campaign for Paul's opponent Jack Conway on the eve of the election.
Clinton will touch down in Kentucky on November
"Conway campaign spokeswoman Allison Haley
confirmed Clinton's return visit but said locations of Clinton's
appearances have not been finalized." reports the Lexington
Lexington businessman Jerry Lundergan, who is
a close friend of the former president, said he has talked to
Clinton, "and he has assured me that he will come back
to Kentucky to campaign for Jack."
Clinton is still popular in Kentucky, a state
he carried twice on his way to the White House in the 1990s.
The news throws up an interesting talking point
in the face of continued smears against Rand Paul's character
on behalf of the corporate media and Conway himself.
While it is clear that the allegations against
Rand Paul have been distorted and blown out of all proportion,
as admitted by the anonymous woman in question who recanted
and admitted that she was never kidnapped, nor force drugged,
the establishment is still using the manufactured hoax in an
effort to discredit Paul.
However, this display of enthusiasm that was noticeably
lacking when the far more serious rape scandals surrounding
Bill Clinton came to light in 1998.
Juanita Broaddrick alleged that then President
Bill Clinton had raped her two decades earlier.
Despite the fact that the majority of Americans believed the
allegations to be true, 54 per cent versus 23 per cent who thought
they were false, and despite Clinton settling the case with
a whopping $850,000 settlement, “A lot of money from someone
who claims he did nothing wrong,” as
Larry Elder wrote, the corporate media again defended
Clinton and downplayed the seriousness of the allegations.
Feminist icon and liberal establishment mouthpiece Gloria Steinem
also sprang to Clinton’s defense in a separate sexual
harassment allegation against Clinton, absolving Clinton for
allegedly forcing Kathleen Willey to place her hand on his genitalia.
“Steinem suggested that women should be of sterner stuff
and that Willey’s description, if true, is small potatoes.
After all, said Steinem, when Willey said, “Stop,”
Clinton stopped. No harm, no foul.”
Despite the fact that Clinton publicly lied to the American
people during the Monica Lewinsky scandal when he said, “I
did not have sexual relations with that woman,”the numerous other women who alleged affairs or who
claimed they had been raped or molested by Clinton
were all dismissed as liars by the corporate media, just as
Lewinsky was branded deceitful before she produced the semen-stained
dress that proved her story to be true, and just as Gennifer
Flowers was also savaged by the establishment before Clinton,
during the Paula Jones deposition, was forced to admit the he
did indeed have sex with Flowers.
While in the case of the Rand Paul, the corporate media took
a non-story, overhyped it, and then manufactured an outright
hoax by claiming that Paul had forcibly kidnapped a woman and
drugged her, and
is still persisting with the issue, in the case
of Clinton, the establishment did everything it could to belittle,
downplay, and ignore what were obviously far more serious and
factually grounded allegations.
The establishment has crucified Rand Paul for his tangential
involvement in a harmless and consensual college prank for weeks
because, unlike alleged rapist Clinton, who they defended to
the hilt, Rand Paul represents a serious threat to the status
quo and has become the de facto voice of the Tea Party –
that’s why Washington elitists and their liberal media
sycophants will continue to invent hoaxes, overhype non-events
from 30 years ago, and slander Rand Paul ceaselessly in a desperate
effort to eviscerate the massive support he enjoys in Kentucky
that is set to help him secure a place in the Senate and become
a true representative of the American people.
The idea that the establishment would send Bill
Clinton as a trustworthy political figure to bolster the campaign
against Rand Paul is sickeningly ironic.
Yesterday Rand Paul once again had to spend time
responding to the baseless allegations against his name. Paul
"In my entire life, I've written and said a lot of things.
I've never said or written anything un-Christian in my life".
Paul told CNN he doubts the voters care about
the questions raised in the spot. "I mean people are concerned
about the federal takeover of health care. They're concerned
about taxes, jobs, the economy," Paul said. "I don't
really think they're concerned about or want to talk about one
man's accusation of another man's religion," he added.
Paul repeated his comments on Fox News, watch
