Exclusive: Bill Clinton sought ´solace´ in
Monica Lewinsky because he could ´no longer
trust´ depressed Hillary after her humiliating
healthcare reform failure, new book reveals

Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Bates

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/3/2018 2:44:11 PM

Bill Clinton may have cheated on his wife with Monica Lewinsky because he had lost confidence in her when she failed to pass healthcare reform, a new book suggests. (Snip) Author and former senior adviser to Congress K. Ward Cummings paints a scathing portrait of a president and a first lady who failed because ´compromise was not part of their vocabulary.´ Cummings writes that they were hampered by characteristics that would later haunt Hillary´s presidential run; their ´intense secrecy, the unhealthy nature of their personal power sharing, and their insistence on treating healthcare reform like a war in which everyone

Comments:
Of course this will not get the coverage of the latest Bannon allegations. If there is any credence in that headline it appears that Hillary has spent most of her life in a depressed state. She is always depressed about something. How many different excuses have we heard about why Clinton messed around with Lewinsky? No one other than us will say that he is just a dirty old philandering horn dog. This book is not only about Clinton but other presidents as well. Cummings also speaks negatively about Bush and Cheney.

Contd. What I find amazing is that I can´t find ANY information on the author of this book other than in the link below from Penguin books. There is no Wikipedia posting for him. I find it rather odd and disturbing that there is information anywhere that states when he served as an adviser in congress and with whom. That is certainly unusual these days. Just who is this guy? Is he a Democrat? A Republican?

Seriously? All the more despicable if he abandoned her when she was down. However, I strongly suspect there was no relationship to abandon but rather an expedient political partnership masquerading as a marriage with the obligatory flying ashtray to appear to be a normal reaction to a cheating spouse.

Baloney! He was running out on her in Arkansas. He used his state troopers to take him to his women. He was accused of rape at Oxford University and was kicked out. He was accused of sexual assault at Yale. What´s his excuse there? She knew all of that and married him anyway. Birds of a feather... We are lucky America survived those two crooks.

Their "marriage" was never about love. It was about power and ambition. If the country found out in the 80´s that the Hildebeast preferred women, she never would have made it to 2016. Bill was just cover. He needed a smart and wily "wife" to further his own ambitions while still maintaining his alley cat ways.
Gotta hand it to them. It worked for him and almost worked for her.
Poor Chelsea. She has to know all this, and that she was just a prop.

That excuse is one for the Books! Bill went after Monica because she made him feel like a Big Shot. She no doubt told him how wonderful he was (while Hillary was telling him he was a stupid, no good, Alley cat). She told him how Handsome and built up his Ego (while Hillary was tearing him down). He loved Monica because she was adventurous and willing. Hillary wasn´t! This story is as old as they come. Yes, it probably was Hillary, and her screaming at Bill that drove him out of the House, but it was BILL who made the decision to put his presidency at risk by his dalliance with an Intern! No excuse for that at all!!

For 37 years seeing Chelsea has reminded him of how Hillary cheated with Webb Hubbell. Maybe that´s why Bubba cheated with all those women.

I suspect William of Ockham might suggest the reason he cheated was simply that he´s an incurable horndog who had the opportunity.

"Solace" comes in many forms. A 21-year-old thong-snapping, pizza-delivering intern stuffed under a desk in the Oval Office is not "solace." Try "opportunism." Try "exploitation." Try "lowdown horndawg." Not "solace."

The Columbia law professor James Comey used as a go-between last year to leak the contents of sensitive memos to the media confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that he previously worked as a “special government employee” (SGE) for Comey’s FBI on an unpaid basis. (Snip) While Richman´s portfolio included the use of encrypted communications by terror suspects, the sources said Richman also was sent talking points about the FBI´s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Those talking points attempted to compare and contrast Clinton´s use of an unsecured personal server exclusively for government business with the case of

The Daily Caller News Foundation and the watchdog group Judicial Watch will file a lawsuit in federal court Wednesday seeking records to determine the actual number of times and reasons former FBI Director James Comey met with then-President Barack Obama. The request by the two organizations was filed because the former FBI director claimed he rarely met with Obama, and he was an independent and nonpartisan leader of the nation’s top law enforcement agency. The parties will file the lawsuit Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Comey’s impartiality about his relationship with Obama was sharply called into

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is now facing possible criminal charges for lying under oath about leaks he made to The Wall Street Journal in 2016, in an effort to salvage his reputation and give his account to journalists who were questioning whether he gave a “stand-down” order to FBI agents investigating the Clinton Foundation. Multiple former FBI officials, along with a Congressional official, say that while there may have been internal squabbling over the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation at the time, there was allegedly another “stand-down” order by McCabe regarding the opening of the investigation into

A D.C. federal judge has delivered the toughest blow yet to Trump administration efforts to end deportation protections for undocumented immigrants known as “dreamers,” ordering the government to continue the Obama-era program and — for the first time — to accept new applicants. U.S. District Judge John D. Bates called the government’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “virtually unexplained” and therefore “unlawful.” However, he stayed his ruling for 90 days to allow the Department of Homeland Security a chance to provide more solid reasoning for ending the program. In his decision Tuesday, Bates said the Trump administration’s decision to

Jarrar, who is of Egyptian, Greek and Palestinian heritage, told The Cut that she believes her own race was certainly a factor in the response to her comments. “Women of color routinely have their tone policed, their justified anger painted as hatred, and their criticism of injustice framed as racism toward white people,” Jarrar told The Cut.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) said President Donald Trump could not “charm” North Korea’s Kim Jong-un into giving up its nuclear weapons. (Snip) SENATOR BOB CORKER: Look, I’m glad they’re meeting. I think all of us look at this with great caution and skepticism. This has been going on for 25 years and obviously Kim Jong-un has learned about public relations (ph) and is setting it up well for him.
