>>          All in all, after ten years of Mena operations, not one arrest
>> was ever made, an accomplishment that is possible only
>> when someone controls the whole state like a collie controls
>> sheep.  This is especially amazing when you consider that the
>> Mena operation was 5,000' to 10,000 times bigger than Whitewater.
>>     Victim No. 18.  Danny Casolaro was a reporter who was
>> investigating the connections between Whitewater.  Mena.  BCCI,
>> Iran-Contra, Reagan's "October Surprise," Park-on-Meter Co.
>> (which made dope-storage nose cones for the airplanes at Mena),
>> and the ADFA (Clinton's billion-dollar state bonds racket).  He
>> affectionately called this network The Octopus.  On August 10,
>> 1991, just as he was about to receive information linking Iran
>> Contra to the Inslaw scandal, the upbeat Danny was found with his
>> wrists slit in the bathtub of a hotel room in West Virginia.
>> What a coincidence.
>>     Victim No. 19.  Paul Wilcher, a Washington, D.C., lawyer, was
>> deeply investigating Mena and other scandals.  He was scheduled
>> for a meeting with Danny Casolaro's former attorney, but on June
>> 22, 1993, was found dead in his apartment, sitting on his toilet.
>> (The bathroom killer strikes again?)
>>     Victim No. 20.  Ed Willey, the manager of Clinton's
>> presidential campaign finance committee who, according to a
>> reliable source in Texas, was involved with shuffling briefcases
>> full of cash. supposedly shot himself on November 30, 1993.
>>     Victim No. 21.  John A. Wilson, a ruggedly honest city
>> councilman in Washington, D.C., knew a lot about Clinton's dirty
>> tricks.  According to my sources, he was preparing to come
>> forward and start talking about them.  But then on May 19, 1993,
>> he Just decided to hang himself instead.
>>     Victims No. 22-56.  This is the saddest disaster of all, not
>> just because it's the biggest, but because the Clinton hit team
>> sacrificed 34 innocent business leaders just to whack one victim.
>>     There are other possible victims, like Paula Gober, Jim
>> Wilhite, Stanley Heard, Steven Dickson, Timothy Sabel, William
>> Barkley, Scott Reynolds, Brian Hassey, and so on.  But my
>> evidence about them isn't convincing, and I refuse to join those
>> who call every Clinton-related death a murder.
>>                    Fun & Games with Colorful Corruption
>>     What is convincing is just the sheer numbers of untimely
>> deaths in the Clinton circle of influence-plus a long string of
>> threats, attacks, beatings, break-ins, wiretaps, and other
>> intimidation.  For example:
>>     - Dennis Patrick of Kentucky has survived three attempts on
>> his life so far-and is now in the federal witness protection
>> program. (Hang in there, Dennis-and never forget who's in charge
>> of that program!)
>>     He was the unwilling customer of Lasater & Company in Little
>> Rock, where tens of millions of dollars were traded (read:
>> laundered) in his account in 1985 and 1986.  Only two problems:
>> He never knew what these trades were ... and it wasn't his money!
>> (Coincidentally, the trading stopped when Barry Seal was killed
>> on February 19, 1986.)
>>     And that's not even the scary part of the story.  The fact
>> that may make our hair stand on end is that Dany
>> Lasater is:
>> -     Bill Clinton's second-best friend
>> -     A convicted cocaine dealer
>> -     a noted host of lavish cocaine parties featuring very young
>>       women
>> -     the employer of Bill's brother
>> -     and the head of Lasater & Co., which issued all $1 billion
>> of Arkansas' state bonds in the '80s (but only if each bond
>> beneficiary first made a huge donation to Clinton's operations or
>> put Hillary on retainer).
>>     It is also alleged that Lasater laundered hundreds of
>> millions of drug dollars through that firm.  But the day after
>> Dan's release from prison only six months later, Bill pardoned
>> him!  Plus, while Dan was still in detention, he gave power of
>> attorney to run the company to Patsy Thomasson. who was one
>> of Bill's top administrative aides, and Bill continued to funnel
>> all the state's bonds through the company-another $664 million
>> worth!
>>     Lasater & Company was the major source of brokered deposits
>> in Madison Guaranty S&L.
>>     And Patsy is now director of the White House Office of
>> Administration.  God help us all.
>> -   According to a sophisticated journal called Heterodoxy.
>> journalist L.J. Davis spent a week nosing around he 14th, as he
>> entered his Little Rock hotel room to some sensitive areas in
>> Arkansas last February.  Then on the 14th, as he entered his
>> Little Rock hotel room to dress for dinner, he was knocked cold.
>> When he awoke on the entry floor four hours later, his wallet was
>> intact, but his notebook and skull weren't.  And there was no
>> furniture within failing distance to account for the
>> darning-egg-size lump over his left ear.
>>     Three weeks later, he sent a draft of his story to The New
>> Republic by modem.  Three hours after that, his phone rang.  A
>> rich baritone voice began, "What you're doing makes Lawrence
>> Walsh look like a rank amateur." (Walsh was Oliver North's
>> tireless prosecutor.)
>>     "Who is this?" Davis demanded.
>>     "Seems to me, you've gotten your bell rung too many times.
>> But did you hear what I just said?"
>>     (click)
>>     Says Davis now, "I used to laugh at things like this-until I
>> ended up on the [expletive] floor."
>>     If all this sounds like tabloid trash to you. you're
>> absolutely right.  And there's a very good reason: The people
>> behind these crimes are tabloid trash.
>>     Then there's the arson stuff.  A nasty little blaze broke out
>> in the Little Rock offices of Peat Marwick, way up in the
>> fourteenth floor of Worthen Tower at midnight, January 24, 1994,
>> just four days after the appointment of the first Whitewater
>> investigator.  It wasn't a bad fire. you see, just bad enough to
>> consume the area that held their 1986 audit of Madison Guaranty.
>> A former Peat Marwick executive tells me that the word came down
>> from Clinton, and they were most definitely forced to destroy the
>> documents.
>>     And remember the flap about the medical records that Bill
>> refused to release?  Word is, all that cocaine finally destroyed
>> his nasal passages. ("Allergies," Bill says.) He spent huge
>> amounts of time flying around the country with Dan Lasater in his
>> cocaine-laden jet and went to numerous parties thrown by Lasater
>> and others, some of which featured "blizzards of cocaine,"
>> according to participants.
>>     Brother Roger recently admitted doing six to eight grams a
>> day (and being a dealer for Lasater), but Bill's usage was
>> probably much less.  Alas, we'll never know now.  His doctor's
>> office files also went up in flames. (Tsk, tsk.  Those medical
>> offices.  You know what a firetrap they are.)
>>     Speaking of drugs: Sally Perdue, a former Miss Arkansas and
>> popular talk show hostess, has told the London Sunday Telegraph
>> that during her 1983 affair with Gov.  Clinton (verified by state
>> trooper L.D. Brown), Bill would usually smoke (and inhale) two or
>> three ready-made marijuana joints drawn from his cigarette case
>> in a typical evening.
>>     On one occasion he pulled out a baggie of cocaine and
>> prepared a "line" right on her table.  "He had all the equipment
>> laid out like a real pro," she recalls. (A mid-level Democratic
>> Party leader warned Sally, before a witness, that if she didn't
>> keep quiet, he "couldn't guarantee what might happen" to her
>> "pretty little legs" when she went out jogging.)
>>     She also told her stories to Sally Jessy Raphael, but in a
>> rare move, the producers strangely decided not to broadcast the
>> videotaped program.
>>     I've also talked with others who say they "got high with
>> Bill" many times-including a man we call Cowboy who says he was
>> Bill's personal drug supplier. (I don't doubt him.) Cowboy is now
>> being held incommunicado in Leavenworth Prison by Janet Reno.
>> When the time comes, they will all speak out.
>> In fact, the main problem may be half of Arkansas trying to get
>> their names in the headlines!
>> -    For a change of pace. here's an incident that's
>> non-violent-but does Includes the President himself.
>>     Little Rock attorney Cliff Jackson, an acquaintance of Bill's
>> from his Oxford days. was approached in Jul 1993, by Lam
>> Patterson and Roger Perry, two former members of Bill's Arkansas
>> security detail.  They wanted to discuss blowing the whistle on
>> his sex escapades. (Other troopers backed up their stories.)
>>     As told to New American magazine, Jackson was discussion
>> their stories on the phone in August with another attorney, Lynn
>> Davis (not related to the above Davis), when...
>>     ... he became suspicious that the phone had been tapped.  He
>> suggested to Davis that they meet in a nearby restaurant.  "'Me
>> whole time we were there. this suspicious-looking guy kept his
>> eve on us," Jackson recalls.  "After we left, we were followed by
>> this dark Suburban with darkened windows and a Texas license
>> plate." Davis noted the vehicle's license plate number and ran a
>> check on it: no such license number was listed.
>>     You've heard of unlisted phone numbers?  Welcome to the
>> phantom surveillance world of unlisted license plates!
>>     Just a few days later, the troopers received phone calls from
>> both Clinton and Buddy Youniz, former head of Gov.  Clinton's
>> security detail.  You can hear the borderline tone of Young's
>> calls in this sample from his tense call to Roger Perry, as he
>> reported it:
>>                  I represent the President of the United States.
>> Why do you want to destroy him over this?...This is not a threat,
>> but I wanted you to know that your own actions could bring about
>> dire consequences.
>>     Clinton's calls were no big, secret, either.  For instance,
>> journalist Gwen Ifill noted in the New York Times, It rums out
>> that some of the calls that were overworking the White House
>> switchboard operators [in the fall of '93] were going not to
>> Capitol Hill but to Arkansas state troopers [to discuss]
>> potentially embarrassing- charges about his marital fidelity.
>>     The troopers related that Bill asked about the pending
>> allegations and offered them plush jobs.  I think what he wanted
>> most was the kind of loyal silence and amnesia he sets from
>> people like Buddy Youngs whom he appointed to a $93,000-a-year
>> FEMA job (not a bad promotion for a cop).
>>     Indeed. there was a lot to be silent about.  In addition to
>> numerous one-night ladies.  Bill had long term affairs with six.
>> One was a real bell-ringer: The Los Angeles Times sifted through
>> thousands of pastes of state phone bills and found 59 calls to
>> her. including eleven on July 16, 1989.  On one government trip.
>> he talked to her from his hotel room from 1:23 A.M. to 2:57 A.M.,
>> then was back on the phone with her at that morning.
>>     Bill's fallback defense is always that. as he claimed on
>> National Public Radio.  "The only relevant questions are
>> questions of whether I abused my office. and the answer is no.
>>     Well.  What do you say?
>>     By far the unluckiest guy in Arkansas is lawyer Gary Johnson,
>> 53. who was peacefully living at Quapaw Towers in Little Rock
>> when Gennifer Flowers moved in next door to him.
>>     Now.  Clinton denied on 60 Minutes that he ever visited
>> Gennifer.  But Gary had a home security system that included a
>> video camera pointed at his door.  Unfortunately, it also covered
>> Gennifer's door and after awhile he had several nice visits on
>> tape. showing Bill letting himself in with his own key.
>>     Either Bill finally noticed the camera. or the grapevine told
>> Bill's aides about it. because on June 26, 1992, three weeks
>> before the Democratic nomination, Gary got a loud knock at the
>> door.  It was three husky. short-haired state trooper types, and
>> they slugged him as they barged in, demanding, the tape.
>>     Gary promptly gave it to them, but they continued punching
>> him. breaking both his elbows, perforating his bladder, rupturing
>> his spleen so badly that doctors had to remove it. beating him
>> unconscious, and leaving him to die.
>>     Now, here's a good question for you: Do you think Bill
>> Clinton actually picked up a phone and initiated this attack?
>>     And here"s a better question: What difference does it make?
>>     For obvious reasons of liberal loyalty, no one in the major
>> media wants to stick his neck out and be the first to do a major
>> piece that pins all these murders and attacks on the President of
>> the United States.
>>     But sooner or later, the dam will break.  The weight and
>> scope of the crimes are just too massive.
>>     Even if only I half these incidents turn out to be accidents
>> or true suicides, Bill will find it Impossible to wiggle out of
>> being implicated in the rest.  When some indicted hit man or
>> functionary sees the evidence piling up against him, he will sing
>> Re a sparrow to save his own tail feathers.  And you will know
>> all the facts before the tidal wave hits-if you'll accept a free
>> copy of my book.
>>     Remember, it took a year for Watergate to become media fodder
>> after its discovery.  But when it did, the crisis of confidence
>> in Nixon (on top of an oil crisis) rattled the stock market to
>> its foundations, and U.S. shareholders lost almost half of their
>> money in the biggest drop in 40 years.  The U.S. then suffered
>> the worst recession since the Great Depression.
>>     Speaking of big money, here's  ...
>>                           How to Make $2 Million
>>                   Developing a God-Forsaken Tract of Land
>>                    Without Selling One Square Foot of It
>>     When the media folk tell you about Whitewater, they leave out
>> a few amusing details.
>>     So in a spirit of altruistic service and public education.
>> I'm going to let you in on the secrets of how to pull off a land
>> scam.  Pay attention, because you've never heard this before.
>>     A. Real estate developing is more fun when you can borrow all
>> your capital without having to pay it back .. or even sell any
>> land.  So to get started, you need two friends: one an appraiser,
>> one a banker.
>>     B. Next, you find some dirt-cheap dirt.  Anywhere in the.
>> boondocks will do.  In the  Whitewater case, it was 230 acres of
>> land along the White River for about $90,000.
>> (Some housing tract!  It was fifty miles to the nearest grocery
>> store.)
>>     C. Then you get your appraiser friend to do a bloated
>> appraisal.  Hey, what are friends for? Let's say he pegs it at
>> $150,000.
>>     D. You go to the bank and get the usual 80% loan.  You now
>> have $120,000, so you pay off the land, and you still have
>> $30,000 in your pocket.  You're on a roll.
>>     E. You pay $5,000 to subdivide it and bulldoze in a few
>> roads. (Or if you know the ropes. you get the state to do it, as
>> Bill did to get a $150,000, two-mile access road.)
>>      F. Voila!  You now are the proud owner of a partly-developed
>> luxury estate community.  So you call up your appraiser friend
>> again. and he re-evaluates it at a cool $400.000.
>>     G. You hustle back to the bank and get a new 80% loan based
>> on the new value. (Nothing out of line so far.  An 80% loan is
>> standard, right?)
>> H.  You draw up plans for some fine houses (which will never be
>> built.)
>> I.  You get a new appraisal.
>> J.  You get a new loan.
>> K.  You make two or three phony homesite sales to friends.  You
>> shuffle the funds around among your shell corporations and bounce
>> it back to your friends-plus a little extra for their help.
>> L.  You get a new appraisal.
>> M.  You get a new loan.
>> N.  You do a "land flip," selling the whole thing to Company X
>> for $800,000, which sells it to Company Y for a million, which
>> sells it back to you for $1.25 million.
>> (AN these companies are your friends.) And yes, this kind of
>> thing did happen in Whitewater and Madison.  In fact.  Whitewater
>> figures David Hale and Dean Paul once flipped Castle Grande back
>> and forth from $200,000 to $825,000 in one day!
>> 0. You get a new appraisal.
>> P. You get a new loan.
>> Q. Finally, your development corporation declares bankruptcy,
>> and the bank has to eat your loans because the money is all gone,
>> and since the record-keeping is so poor, nobody knows where
>> it went.
>>     But weep not for the bankers.  You pay them nicely-perhaps a
>> third of the $2 to $3 million you skim off.  Weep for the
>> taxpayer who bails out their banks.
>>     Which is to say, in the case of Whitewater, weep for
>> yourself.
>>                          Does This Actually Work?
>>      Whitewater was just the first of a series, like a pilot for
>> a sitcom. Using Whitewater as a prop, Bill and his partner Jim
>> McDougal milked-by my rough estimate--million dollars from the
>> SBA and at least five or six banks and S&Ls, starting with the
>> bank of Kingston.
>>      But their later ventures, bringing in Steve Smith and
>> recently convicted ex-Governor Jim Guy Tucker, did even better.
>> Campobello started with about $150,000 in property and squeezed
>> over $4 million in loans from banks in about two years.  Castle
>> Grande began with $75,000 worth of swamp land and cleared over $3
>> million.  It never built anything.  The only human artifacts on
>> it today are a few old refrigerators and mattresses.
>>    Why do I have information you haven It seen before? Because my
>> firm had $10 Million in Madison Guaranty S&L and I was thinking
>> of buying the Bank of Kingston. (I was already worth millions by
>> that time.) When I saw Kingston's financial statement, however, I
>> ran like a scalded cat.
>>     And Madison was worse.  You didn't have to be a Philadelphia
>> CPA to spot their money laundering, dead real estate liabilities
>> proudly listed as assets. huge amounts of 24-hour deposits from
>> brokers, and $17 million in under loans.  It was a nightmare.
>> Whitewater Development Corp. had at least an appearance of
>> sincerity.  It even had TV commercials, starring Jim's striking
>> young wife, Susan, in hot pants, riding a horse.  Another one
>> showed her behind the wheel of Bill's restored '67 Mustang.  A
>> new commercial would have to show her in prison stripes.
>>     But after Whitewater, the deals began dropping their frills
>> like a hooker in a hurry to get things over with. The RTC
>> criminal referral that Bill suppressed during his presidential
>> campaign cites such later corporations as Tucker-Smith-McDougal,
>> Smith-Tucker-McDougal, and Smith-McDougal.  Catchy, eh'?  If it
>> were me, I would have called them Son of Whitewater,
>> Whitewatergate, and Whitewater & Ponzi, L.P.
>>     Stop Me If You've Heard This One
>> The biggest joke in all of Whitewater is Hillary's claim that she
>> was just a passive investor.
>>     The best comment I've seen on this is by Martin Gross, author
>> of The Great Whitewater Fiasco, who commented on the fate of
>> Whitewater Lot 13:
>>  I have a copy of the deed.  She didn't pay a dollar for it.  She
>> borrowed $30.000 on it. built a model house (didn't work), she
>> sold it for $23,000.  She pocketed the down payment.  The man who
>> bought it went bankrupt.  She went to bankruptcy court. rebought
>> it for $8.000. resold it for $27,000.  And they say she's
>> passive!  I say if she was any more active. she'd have been
>> frenetic.
>>                                Short Report
>>     On their 1979 income tax, Hillary valued Bill's used
>> undershorts--donated to charity at the end of their
>> action-studded tour of duty-at two dollars a pair.
>>     Plainly, we are dealing here with a couple that gives loving
>> attention to detail in matters of deductions.
>>     As you may recall, however, Clinton has proclaimed over and
>> over that he simply "forgot" to deduct the S68,900 he claims he
>> lost on Whitewater.  Commentators have been mystified by the
>> paradox.
>>     But it's no mystery to me.  The reason is obvious: Bill
>> didn't deduct the $68,900 because he didn't lose a dime on
>> Whitewater, and he didn't want to do time for tax fraud.  Period.
>>     Jim McDougal put up all the money except for $500-and Bill
>> borrowed even that.
>>     But weep not for Jim.  Not only was he Bill's partner in
>> Whitewater, but he owned Madison Guaranty S&L, which was the
>> designated milk cow that provided most of the inflated loans.
>> Weep instead for the taxpayers-like you and me-who picked up the
>> $66 million tab when Madison folded.
>>           The Paperless Office Is Pioneered by the Rose Law Firm
>> Will Bill and Hillary go to jail for masterminding all the land
>> deals that fall under the label Whitewater? I expect they
>> will-not because of existing documents, but because of the
>> testimony of subpoenaed people.
>> The few remaining documents will play a supporting role, but
>> frankly, friend, there aren't many left.  According to grand jury
>> testimony: On February 3, 1994, right after the appointment of
>> the special counsel for Whitewater, the nice folks at the Rose
>> Law Firm fired up their high-speed Ollie-o-Matic paper shredder
>> and ordered courier Jeremy Hedges to slice 'n dice his way into
>> the history books by destroying whitewater documents.  As far as
>> anyone knows, Rose now has no more Whitewater records than you
>> do.
>>     Actually, a lot of the usual documents were never created in
>> the first place.  For instance, there was no written partnership
>> agreement (don't try this at home).  No transactions were written
>> up, even though Clinton's real estate agent says there were
>> $300,000 in sales.  No deeds were ever recorded.  And if any
>> interest was paid on bank loans, the payment checks are missing.
>>     Plus, after Whitewater, Bill got very smart and kept his name
>> completely out of every subsequent deal he cut.  That's what has
>> vitiated these tedious inquiries of Sen. D'Amato.
>>     But the Whitewater monies, probably several million,
>> ricocheted from shell company to shell company like the
>> basketball in a Harlem Globetrotters warmup drill. and every
>> dollar wound up in the proper pocket.  Beneficiaries included
>> many of the biggest names in Arkansas-like Gov.  Tucker, Seth
>> Ward, and some very powerful executives from outfits like
>> Wal-Mart and Tyson's Chicken-Clinton campaign backers all.
>> (Campaign records for 1982 and 1984, the two most suspicious
>> years, have also been studiously shredded.)
>>     And Bill, who entered public office with nothing but debts,
>> and who never made over $35,000 a year as ,governor, is now worth
>> about four to five million.  A real rags-to-riches, American
>> success story, isn't it?  Kind of puts a lump in your throat.
>>     But there's one other reason for Bill's success.  In a word,
>> Hillary.  Prepare to be shocked as you learn...
>> Why the Feds Settled for $1 Million on $60 Million in Debts
>>     You'll find this one hard to believe, so read carefully.
>>      Item:     When Madison Guaranty folded. it was somewhere
>> between $47 and $68 million ' the hole. The tab in has settled at
>> $65 million.
>>     Item:      One of the biggest defaults was $600,000 in loans
>> to one of Madison's own directors. Seth Ward, who is the
>> father-in-law of Webb Hubbell.  Webb happened to be Hillary's law
>> partner and until April was the No. 3 man at the Justice
>> Department-and assigned to investigate
>> Whitewater!
>>     Item:      When the RTC cleanup crew took over Madison.
>> Hillary had been on retainer to Madison for many
>> months.
>>     Got it so far?  OK.  Now, the RTC lawsuit sought $60 million
>> from Madison's debtors.  But here's what happened:
>>      1.  Hillary negotiated the RTC down from $60 million to $1
>> million.  What a talker'
>>      2.  Hillary then got the RTC to forgive the $600.000 debt
>> Seth
>> Ward owed the RTC@very penny of it-thus leaving the RTC with
>> $400,000.
>>      3.   But wait!  Hillary did these two deeds as the counsel
>> for the RTC, not Madison.  Incredible as it sounds to those of us
>> who have to live in the real world, Hillary got herself hired by
>> the RTC, and in  that position. from the Government side, she
>> talked them down to $1 million.
>>      4.   Her fee for the RTC job was (pure coincidence)
>> $400,000. Which left the government with $400,000 minus
>> $400,000 ... or in technical accounting terms, zippo.
>>      5.   And who do you suppose was the mastermind who conned
>> the RTC into hiring Madison's own Hillary to prosecute Madison?
>> None other than the late Vince Foster!  When he made his pitch to
>> the RTC, he, neglected to tell them about Hillary's retainer with
>> Madison.  In fact, he even wrote them a letter stating that the
>> Rose Law Finn didn't represent thrifts!
>>     Vince and Hillary were, by the way, very, uh, close.  Not
>> only were they partners at Rose. but there's no shortage of
>> people who saw them hugging and smooching in public.  Arkansas
>> troopers say that when Bill took a trip on state business, Vince
>> was often at the mansion gates within minutes-and would stay till
>> the wee hours.  They also spent a few weekends together at the
>> Rose vacation cabin in the mountains.  And when Hillary filed for
>> divorce from Bill in 1986, Vince was right there at her side.
>> (She withdrew the suit when Bill's political fortunes
>> improved.)
>>                            178 Years in Club Fed
>>     Nobody ever accused Bill Clinton of being stupid.
>>     As proof, look at the Congressional hearings.  What a hoot!
>> Bill had them stacked so that fully 99% of all
>> Whitewater crimes were off limits!
>>     This left our dignified Congressmen sternly chasing the
>> remaining 1% of petty misdemeanors with hardly a mention of
>> fourteen years of felonies: shell games, killings, break-ins,
>> coverups, threats, bribes, thefts, check kiting, payoffs, arson,
>> money laundering, fraud, influence of testimony, tampering,- with
>> witnesses, you name it. (It's all in The Presidential Mess.)
>>     And Bill managed to focus 100% of the attention on Altman,
>> Nussbaum, Cutler and others, with none of it on himself.  You
>> have to admit, that's pretty smart maneuvering.
>>     In February, 1994.  The American Spectator added up two pages
>> of Bill's alleged crimes, and the total potential penalties came
>> to $2.5 million in fines and 178 years in prison.  And they just
>> listed the piddly stuff, like tax fraud and soliciting bribes;
>> they didn't even mention the heavier incidents I listed above!
>> (They did include a short roster of Hillary's much lighter
>> penalties, totaling only S 1.2 million and 47 years.)
>>     Is such punishment excessive?  I think not.  Even if you
>> ignore the mayhem, the Clinton economic damage has been severe.
>> Counting Clinton's Arkansas Development Finance Authority, which
>> never awarded a bond grant without a major campaign contribution
>> and Bill's signature. he sucked over a billion dollars from state
>> and federal taxpayers.
>>                      You Must Read the Enclosed Letter
>>     Please forgive me for sounding dramatic. but this is a dark
>> day for the republic.
>>     I apologize for giving you such an avalanche of appalling
>> news.  God knows.  I've tried to keep my tone somewhat light. but
>> I realize that you are probably still alarmed.  This data could
>> easily start an earthquake that could pancake the markets.
>>     Remember, though: the Whitewater and Brown crimes have now
>> become so serious that Clinton Is presidency will likely
>> collapse.  This document you are reading-and other coming
>> revelations in the media will soon combine to force the
>> mainstream liberal media to start paying attention.
>>     And when that happens, you will be looking at a Dole
>> presidency-which will be less damaging to America and to you.
>>     So read on.  Despite all the depressing matters you've just
>> read. there is a bright silver lining.  Yes, I do think it's the
>> darkest day for the republic since World War II.  But for you
>> personally, the troubles ahead will ironically give you the
>> greatest opportunity of your life to vastly improve your
>> financial picture.
>>     Please get a firm grip on your emotions and read the enclosed
>> letter now.
>>                              Meet Nick Guarino
>>                      The Fastest Mind on Wall Street?
>>     What can you say about a man who got a speeding ticket at age
>> seven?  Or who had a run-in with the FBI at age eleven?  Or
>> became a floor trader at sixteen?
>>     Nicholas A. Guarino, editor of The Wall Street Underground,
>> is simply the fastest and brightest mind we've ever worked with.
>> As publishers of sophisticated financial information, we consider
>> ourselves fairly intelligent, vet we find ourselves totally
>> outclassed by Nick in most ways. (Exception: He can't spell for
>> sour apples.)
>>     His aggressive mind has kept him ahead of the crowd all his
>> life.  For example:
>>     - At seven, he figured out how to soup up his go-cart,
>> designed to go 5 mph. to hit 55 mph!  The cops finally caught up
>> with him at his front door.
>>     - At eight, he built his own radio transmitter out of old TV
>> sets he'd pulled from garbage cans and used it to make a friend
>> in Moscow.  After some correspondence, a tipster in Nick's post
>> office reported his name to the FBI.  When agents showed up at
>> his home, they were amazed to find their suspected commie
>> sympathizer was in the second grade.
>>     - After Nick complained bitterly that he was bored to death,
>> his grammar school teachers in New Jersey gave him an I.Q. test.
>> When the score came back at 180. they made him retake it.  When
>> the second score came back well over 200. they were astounded.
>> What they didn't realize was that their little charge had been
>> ready 20 to 30 books a week since he entered school. and in fact
>> had read most of his parents Encyclopedia Brittanica before the
>> first grade.
>>     - In agony with school, he left home at 14.  Inspired by
>> stories of his grandfather's success as a penniless immigrant who
>> became a millionaire grocery magnate, he moved to Manhattan's
>> Lower East Side and before long found work as a gofer with a firm
>> at the New York Stock Exchange. (He was tall for his age.) When
>> Nick was sixteen. his boss fell ill one day and had to leave in
>> the midst of a trading crisis.  Nick intuitively knew what trades
>> had to be done, so he put on a trader's coat. marched out onto
>> the floor. and started trading.  "Made money too," Nick says.
>> (Yes, the other traders knew how old he was, but they all liked
>> the spunky kid. so no one squealed!)
>>     Even in his twenties, Nick was enormously successful on Wall
>> Street.  In fact, he was getting buyout offers from brokerage
>> competitors who flat-out admitted.  "Frankly, kid, you're making
>> us look terrible.'
>>     But rather than retiring young, he dived into a lifelong,
>> ferocious effort to correct the corrupt political and financial
>> networks that had completely destroyed his late grandfather's
>> fortune.
>>     Today, he is still very hard at worry to warn others of the
>> acute dangers of evil, power-hungry men in positions of
>> influence.  He lives in a scenic. secluded place as far from
>> Arkansas as he can get.
>> Footnote: I hereby serve notice that I am not depressed in the
>> least, and that if anything happens to me, I publicly accuse Bill
>> Clinton and his circle of power.
