Hillary conspiring with the evil, RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE

Crossing over to the dark side, yet again, Hillary sat down with the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and its owner, the infamous, Richard Mellon Scaife.  Together, they jointly attacked Barack Obama for attending Jeremaih Wright's church.

But this begs a question (echoed later by Keith and WaPo, in the above clip): Hillary, how in hell could you kiss-up to Scaife!

"You know, I spoke out against Don Imus, saying that hate speech was unacceptable in any setting, and I believe that," Clinton said. "I just think you have to speak out against that. You certainly have to do that, if not explicitly, then implicitly by getting up and moving."

You note, Hillary failed to take the opportunity to "reject and denounce" Scaife and his sinister history.

Scaife is one of the money men behind the war-mongering, neo-conservative American Enterprise Institute.

Scaife also funded the Arkansas Project: which led the 1990s right-wing witch-hunt, ultimately leading to the Paula Jones law suit, the appointment of Ken Starr, and the impeachment of Bill Clinton.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review was the epicenter of the "Hillary killed Vince Foster" conspiracy theory through its stooge, Christopher Ruddy.

You think we forgot, HILLARY ???

In November 1994, Ruddy was hired to investigate the story full-time by the Tribune-Review.

In between Ruddy's departure from the Post and joining the Tribune-Review, he put out a report through the Western Journalism Center criticizing the Fiske investigation as inadequate. With the help of Scaife, the Center took out full-page ads in major newspapers to promote the report (Scaife gave $330,000 to the Center in 1994-95 before ending his support).

Ruddy's claimed that Park Police had staged the scene of Foster's death as described in their reports.

Ruddy later built on his work on the Foster case for his book, "The Strange Death of Vincent Foster."


In a 1981 "Columbia Journalism Review" profile of Scaife, reporter Karen Rothmyer attempted to interview Scaife:

   "Mr. Scaife, could you explain why you give so much money to the New Right?"

   "You fucking Communist cunt, get out of here."

This is who Clinton consorts with - the ENEMY!!

She will say and do anything.  

She will deal with anyone, including the Devil himself, to get claw her way to power.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
