Bill and Hillary Clinton and the aphrodisiac of power

Convicted pedophile, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein (inset left), and former close friend Bill Clinton. Oh, and Hillary Clinton.

WASHINGTON, October 10, 2016 — “Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac,” former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the New York Times in 1971. And no one personifies that sentiment better than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has demeaned herself for decades in her loveless marriage to serial womanizer, former President Bill Clinton. In terms of a meaningful, lifetime relationship, this marriage leaves much to be desired.

It’s clear that Hillary has never really seen the charming philanderer, perjurer, obstructer of justice and accused rapist as more than her ticket to a career in politics and the rush that comes with having nuclear weapons at your command. And her husband’s use of politics as sexual foreplay with the nation’s media—Newsweek’s Nina Buleigh once said, “I’d be happy to give him [Bill Clinton] a blowjob for keeping abortion legal”—has accrued to Hillary’s benefit.

But the press can only do so much. Recently, the Gallup organization found that only 33 percent of Americans see Hillary as “honest and trustworthy.”

Clinton’s pay-for-play influence peddling on behalf of the family foundation, while serving as secretary of state, has further shredded the tatters of her reputation.

Speaking of the Clinton Global Initiative—now the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation—it is associated with another name the press rarely mentions: Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein is a former professor of mathematics at New York’s prestigious Dalton School. He rose through the ranks and eventually partnered at the now defunct Bear Stearns investment bank and Wall Street brokerage.

He was also convicted in posh Palm Beach, Florida, of soliciting an underage girl and is now a registered sex offender.

It is a testament to his financial and political pull that Epstein served much of his 18-month sentence at his palatial home on South Florida’s exclusive barrier island, once home to American royals the Kennedys, now the playground of conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh and New York Times bestselling author James Patterson.

In their book “Filthy Rich,” James Patterson and John Connolly write, “Epstein definitely liked his massages. He got them from two, even three, young women a day. Right in his mansion on the island. He’d been operating on an almost industrial scale. But who were these girls? Where had they come from? How did they find their way to his home on a secluded street in Palm Beach?”

Prior to his 2008 felony conviction, Epstein attorneys Alan Dershowitz and Gerald Lefcourt sent a letter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Florida, saying leniency was due their client because “Mr. Epstein was part of the original group that conceived the Clinton Global Initiative, which is described as a project ‘bringing together a community of global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.”

Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial for perjury and obstruction of justice, and Hillary Clinton’s kid-glove handling by the Justice Department over her handling of U.S. government secrets and arms sales to Islamic militias in Libya, suggest that the Clinton name comes with a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Conchita Sarnoff, director of the Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking—an organization which aims to end child sex trafficking—said it was difficult finding a publisher because her book relates the twisted story of Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein’s close association.

In “TrafficKing,” Sarnoff says that first among the fears gripping New York publishing houses was “a [Hillary] Clinton Presidency.”

It has been alleged in civil suits filed in Palm Beach and New York City that sex orgies with young, underage girls were a frequent occurrence aboard Epstein’s private Boeing 727, infamously known as the “Lolita Express.”

Fox News broke the story last May that, “Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s [Epstein’s] infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips … even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights.”

Bill Clinton’s name appeared at least 26 trips in the flight log of Epstein’s “Lolita Express.”

Fox added that Epstein “allegedly had a team of [human] traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on ‘Orgy Island,’ an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

“I remember asking Jeffrey, ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?” Virginia Roberts, who claims to have been one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves, told the New York Post in 2015.

According to the Post, she claimed, “Clinton stayed in one of the many villas on Epstein’s … estate—where group sex was a ‘regular occurrence.’”

The charges are hard to dismiss in light of Bill Clinton’s loutish history, one Trump highlighted prior to last Sunday’s debate with Hillary Clinton.

Among the four women appearing at a press conference with Trump was Juanita Broaddrick.

“I’m here to support Donald Trump,” Broaddrick began. “I tweeted recently and Mr. Trump retweeted it, that actions speak louder than words. Mr. Trump may have said some bad words,” said Broaddrick in reference to a video clip showing Trump making lude comments about touching women, “but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison,” said Broaddrick.

After the women related their stories, the press began to ask questions.

“Mr. Trump,” one reporter began, “Why do you say you touch women without their consent?” A slew of reporters repeated the question almost in unison.

“Why don’t y’all ask Bill Clinton that?” shouted an outraged Paula Jones, “Go ahead, ask Hillary as well.”

Jones, you may recall, filed a civil action against Bill Clinton for sexually harassing her when he was governor of Arkansas in 1991. The legal question back then was whether a sitting president could be subject to civil litigation when the U.S. Constitution, under the “separation of powers” doctrine, prohibits all but impeachment proceedings against the Chief Executive.

In Clinton v. Jones, however, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Jones’ favor, requiring the president to answer her attorney’s questions under oath.

Clinton lied, giving Congress the crime of perjury to add to its second count of obstruction of justice. The two articles of impeachment passed the House of Representatives on Dec. 19, 1998.

The U.S. Senate refused to convict.

As author James Patterson says, the twisted sexcapades of registered pedophile Epstein have fueled suspicions about “the super-rich and powerful,” and that his story “is an object lesson about why we ought to be. To put it simply, some people think they can operate outside the law. And that’s what they do.”

Take the Clintons as a for instance.
