Now it’s Bill Thinton: Former U.S.
President shows off trim look
after switching to vegan
diet two years ago

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/17/2012 11:44:06 AM

He was once known for his love of junk food. But Bill Clinton´s efforts to slim down have clearly paid off. The former US President, 66, looked remarkably trim as he left a plush London restaurant on Thursday night. Mr Clinton had been enjoying a dinner with actor Kevin Spacey at the upmarket Scott´s seafood restaurant in Mayfair, after giving a speech in the capital. The former president, formerly known for his love of burgers, barbecue and junk food, changed to a strict vegan diet in 2010 after fears over his health. Clinton, 66, had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004

Comments:
He looks ill on these photos. The brown 3-piece suit doesn´t help.

He looks great for 66, and has probably added years to his life by becoming a vegan. Americans are so surrounded by tub-o-lards that someone with a healthy BMI looks ´frail´ or ´ill´ to them.

Yeah, the Rhodes ´Scholar´ who cheered with the Russian Communists against America, who swindled people with whitewater, who stood by while AIDS infected blood from prisoners of the Arkansas prison system was sold to a blood bank in Canada, who took bribes from a Red Chinese general to allow missile tech to be sold to China, who made low sulfur coal acreage in the US southwest into a national ´park´ after a contribution from southeast Asian mining owners, who had private thugs threaten witnesses, who used state troopers to set up women for his sexual assualts, who lied to congress under oath, who treated the WTC bombing, etc. etc.... Yeah, I´m sure he looked great. The fawning, propagandist, neocommunist news media is the root of most of the ills of the world.

Vegan diet? Ok, whatever. Looks like a possible STD flareup, or worse. bubba looks sick in these photos, as in really sick, and they´re claiming it´s because he´s eating healthy for once in his life.

Sure. Nothing like a healthy diet to make a guy look like crap.

I also heard somewhere that he did not have sex with that woman, monica lewinsky.

#8, My Niece is a Vegan and ended up in the hospital with severe stomach problems. It is definitely not a healthy life style. Vegetarian is better as it allows for cheese and eggs. Too much soy has shown to be bad for you. And to #2., no one is jealous of vegans that I know, and I know a lot of Atkins followers who are fit, healthy and happy. Me being one. We are not all "tubs of lard."

So he eats in an upscale London restaurant with Kevin Spacey: What does he order? Pinto beans al Nicoise, apple cubes al Provincal and tomatoes Milanese washed down with a Perrier? Spacey probably had a filet with a bottle of Cabernet.

Glad to see other posters cite a chunk of Clinton´s specific negatives. I just didn´t have it in me today to take another Clinton muck-wallow.

So I´ll just summarize as follows: Bill Clinton has no clean end by which he might be picked up.

And I´ll exit with an observation on veganism [or whatever it might be called]: "Vegetables are what food eats."

Hat tip to ALF. Insight is insight, whatever the source.

Why are vegans so smug?

The air of superiority about this strange lifestyle, and condemnation of everyone who eats a normal sensible diet as being "a tub of lard", is offputting to the max.

Does it make them feel good about themselves, make up for other deficits?

Whoa! He is not a vegan. He eats seafood.

Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.

http://www.vrg.org/nutshell/vegan.htm#what

I´m surprised the vegans among us didn´t catch the bit about seafood and the omission of fish and seafood from his "diet list". Tsk, tsk.

And tell me there is no leather in his shoes, no wool (and maybe silk) in his suit and other clothing, no animal by-products in his soap?

He is a kind of vegeterian. Kind of. Sort of. If you don´t look too closely.

I know a few vegetarians who were told by their doctors that they must eat some meat. These were not vegans, but vegetarians. They ate cheese and eggs, but the doc said it wasn´t good enough. These women are cancer survivors.

High protein is the best diet going, IMO.

He looks like a gargoyle.

Vegetarians, and especially vegans, are more likely to go blind due to lack of protein. There is also evidence that such a diet can actually cause the brain to shrink. And no amount of beans and rice or soy protein comes close to supplying the protein that meat gives to the body.

Ever wonder why the vast majority of vegetarians and vegans are libs? Now you know - shrunken brain = shrunken intelligence.

If you look at the entire animal world you´ll see that the eyes of carnivores are generally located on the front of the head, to improve the ability to hunt. See humans, dogs, cats, owls etc. The vegetarians animals are the prey and have eyes located on the sides of the head so that they can graze and still keep an eye out for the predators. See horses, deer, rabbits, etc. It´s not natural for a human to be a vegetarian. I always laugh when I hear vegetarians talk about the glories of ´natural´ foods.

He still has those long, boney fingers. You know, the ones he poked in your face (from the TV) and said "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky." May not be an exact quote, but close enough. It´s been awhile.

I think one of the reasons he looks frail and sickly is because of damage from the heart operation. I read that 50% or more of heart surgery patients suffer from brain damage after being on a heart-lung machine.
These patients suffer from memory loss and a changed personality in mild cases. The medical profession even has a name for this common condition, it is called being a "pump head". I think it is a national scandal.

#35 - OK that was an inelegant choice and I admit it. Should have used Mark Steyn´s phrase ´lardbuttus americanus´ instead? Just kidding.

Say you are equally offended by the comparison of vegans to AIDS and cancer victims, ill and near death etc.

Not smug at all, just feel a little annoyed when people who get short of breath after climbing a few steps think of me, a long distance runner, as unhealthy :-) and I am in the upper half of normal weight range (BMI 23, normal being 18.5-24.9).

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
