Bill Clinton’s Mess

Towels and Lipstick and …

The West Wings Receptionist Buzz

 “I stood guard, a pistol at my hip, outside the Oval Office, the last barrier before anyone saw Bill Clinton”

As seen in the above photo from April 3, 1997, Eleanor Mondale arrived for the premiere of The Saint in Los Angeles. Eleanor died from brain cancer as a 51-year-old in 2011, but a new book by Gary J Byrne, is resurrecting her name and a whole bunch of controversy about the Clintons. It is the same book that told the world Hillary Clinton allegedly gave Bill Clinton a black eye.
The former Secret Service agent Byrne claims, that things got so heated during Bill Clinton’s Presidency over his affairs that the Secret Service discussed the prospect of “domestic violence” between Hillary and her husband. Because of Gary’s close proximity to the Clintons during some of their most volatile days in the White House, the authors’ testimony of his experiences with Bill and Hillary are being closely followed.

‘Having witnessed the personal and political dysfunction of the Clinton White House – so consumed by scandal and destroying their enemies, real and imagined – Byrne came to understand that, to the Clintons, governing was an afterthought.
Gary has likened President Clinton’s alleged revolving door of women, to running a brothel instead of leading the country via the White House.
In  his upcoming book, Crisis of Character, Byrne claims while President Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky he was also having one with former Vice President Walter Mondale’s daughter, Eleanor Mondale.
In the book, the author writes, “There before us was E! Network host, Eleanor Mondale . . . and President Clinton in a compromising position, that is, making out on the Map Room table.”

According to Byrne, he was “The last barrier before Monica Lewinsky saw Bill Clinton.” Moreover, Lewinsky was jealous of Mondale’s relationship with the President. Bill Clinton’s White House was a seedy “brothel” where the “horndog” President entertained a veritable harem of mistresses, the former US Secret Service agent has claimed.

Photo Of The Day

During the 1960s, Campbell was considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She was well connected among other stars, politicians, and socialites, and her relationship with Giancana put her on the FBI's radar. J. Edgar Hoover quickly learned about Campbell's relationship with Kennedy, and set up surveillance on her home. Additionally, Campbell was relentlessly harassed and questioned by the FBI, and when she became concerned about the whole ordeal, Kennedy assured her it was nothing to worry about. However, it was all too much for Campbell and after one last visit to the White House, she broke things off with Kennedy.

 The Exner Files

Judith Campbell Exner, JFK and the Mob

For many years, rumours circulated that Judith Campbell had  been involved in a plot hatched between her two lovers, John F. Kennedy and Sam Giancana, to kill the Cuban leader, Fidel Castro. In 1991 she came forward and described how she had sat on the edge of the bathtub in a Chicago hotel while the president and the Mafia don talked in the bedroom.

Kennedy’s involvement with the Mob in a plot to kill the Cuban president has often been put forward as one of the reasons for his own assassination in Dallas in November1963.

The three gunshots fired in Dallas 53 years ago meant a Presidential legacy unfulfilled — and a personal life unresolved.

The sorry mess of sexual exploits that President John F. Kennedy left behind took years to emerge. The supporting cast was vast, and one of them, a woman who was, next to Marilyn Monroe, the most famous one, though not by her choice.

Judith Campbell Exner was the first of JFK’s lovers to be publicly identified, and so she was pilloried by a public furious at learning that at least one wing of Camelot had more in common with the Playboy Club.

A beautiful woman is introduced to a handsome, charismatic Senator running for President by an Academy Award winning movie star. They fall into an affair. Meanwhile, the beautiful woman is also introduced to the head of the Chicago mob by the same man. The beautiful woman carries messages and arranges meetings between the now President of the United States and the Chicago mobster. Sounds like the plot of a thriller, or a conspiracy theorists wet dream doesn’t it? However in this case, it happens to be true. Allegedly.

This much can be proved.

Better than “Gym Bunny”

The Secret Service gives their charges codenames, most get to choose the codenames themselves. Paul Ryan has chosen a cool one:

Paul Ryan has chosen “Bowhunter” as his Secret Service code name, in a nod to his passion for deer stalking.

The vice-presidential candidate’s choice echoes Mitt Romney’s own selection of “Javelin” and completes an election-year line up that includes Barack Obama’s “Renegade” and Joe Biden’s “Celtic”.

The Secret Service gives families codenames all beginning with the same letter, leaving Mr Ryan’s wife Janna with the gentler title of “Buttercup”, according to GQ.

As well as being a fitness fanatic, Mr Ryan is an avid hunter and stalks the woods of his native Wisconsin armed with a state-of-the-art bow and a quiver of arrows.

The 42-year-old congressman is the only passionate hunter on either ticket and has turned his hobby into an electoral asset.
In an interview for the cover story of this month’s Deer and Deer Hunter magazine he describes how his Winchester rifle was “shaking in my hands” as he killed his first deer at the age of 16.He also reveals how be bought his 10-year-old daughter a rifle for Christmas and brought all three of his three young children into the hunting stands with him.

Yep “Bowhunter” is much better than “Gym Bunny”

Secret Service Scandal Widens

NZ Herald

At least 20 foreign women and as many Secret Service officers and Marines met at a hotel in Colombia in an incident involving prostitution, and lawmakers are seeking information about any possible threat to the US or to President Barack Obama, who arrived for a conference soon after, congressional officials said.

In briefings throughout the day, Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan told lawmakers that 11 members of his agency met with 11 women at a hotel in Cartagena, and more non-American females were involved with American military personnel. The presidential guard in the United States comprises members of the Secret Service.

Meanwhile the obvious cartoons and lampooning using Bill Clinton have begun:

Nice for some

Herald Sun

Obamas bodyguards have been guarding the wrong bodies:

A DOZEN US Secret Service agents have been relieved of their duties after allegations of personal misconduct involving prostitutes.

The agents had been sent to Colombia to provide security for US President Barack Obama at an international summit.

The AP received an anonymous tip that the misconduct involved prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, the site of the Summit of the Americas.

A Secret Service spokesman did not dispute the allegation.

A US official, who was not authorised to speak publicly on the matter and requested anonymity, put the number of agents at 12. The agency was not releasing the number of personnel involved.

The incident threatened to overshadow Mr Obama’s economic and trade agenda at the summit and embarrass the US. The White House had no comment.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan would not confirm that prostitution was involved, saying only that there had been “allegations of misconduct” made against Secret Service personnel in the Colombian port city hosting Mr Obama and more than 30 world leaders.

Mr Donovan said the allegations of misconduct were related to activity before the president’s arrival on Friday night, where Mr Obama was attended a leaders’ dinner at Cartagena’s historic Spanish fortress.
