READING THE TEA LEAVES
Expert Post-Election Analysis by Dan Branermi
Straw man Bob Dole pretended to run for President. He went easy
on Bill Clinton in return for a cushy post-election job, perhaps
as part of a bi-partisan commission of some type.
The larger picture is for a second-term slow grilling of Bill
Clinton with him eventually stepping down. In the works may well
be, as emphasized by Sherman H. Skolnick of Chicago, an
appointment by post-Clinton President Al Gore of Jay Rockefeller
as Vice President. From there, Gore could be given the heave-ho
based on alleged scandals connected to him.
All this "coincidentally" would occur concurrently with an
inevitable economic collapse. Public rage at economic disaster
could be diverted onto hapless Bill Clinton, suddenly revealed as
a crook to a somewhat ignorant public.
Countering all this could be Clinton stonewalling: as head of
the Executive branch, Bill Clinton has a lot of power. Were such
stonewalling to occur, a prolonged agony of Clinton scandal
hearings, investigations, and "news," may bring the situation to
a tragic climax: veteran White House correspondent Sarah
McClendon reportedly has voiced fears that Clinton may be
Clinton is Oswald. As pointed out by Michel Foucault in his
book, *Surveiller et punir*, the condemned man represents the
symmetrical, inverted figure of the king. Lee Harvey Oswald's
father died two months before he was born. Oswald's uncle,
Charles "Dutz" Murret, was Lee's surrogate father during his
youth. "Uncle Dutz" became connected with Carlos Marcello's
Louisiana Mafia in 1947, and later helped young Lee Harvey Oswald
gain employment as a "runner" for Marcello. Both Lee and Uncle
Dutz worked in Marcello's downtown bookmaking network. (See
*Mafia Kingfish* by John H. Davis, e.g. ch. 52.)
Bill Clinton's father William Blythe died in a car wreck in May
of 1946. About three months later his son, the future President
Bill Clinton, was born. Bill Clinton had as mentor and surrogate
father one Raymond G. Clinton, brother of stepfather Roger
Clinton, Sr. "Uncle Raymond" tutored young Bill Clinton in the
hidden ways of politics. As pointed out by Roger Morris in
*Partner's in Power*, "it would be to big Uncle Raymond that
Billy turned again and again in matters of real power and
ambition." According to veteran sleuth Skolnick, Uncle Raymond
had underworld connections (see CN 9.54).
Oswald was the condemned man -- the inverted figure of the king.
About 30 years after the death of condemned man Oswald we have
come full-circle: Clinton is the inverted figure of the
condemned man. Who is praised when the harvest (economy) is
good? The king. Who is blamed when the crops (economy) fail?
The king. The planned eruption of the various Clinton scandals
into general public consciousness will coincide with the "crops"
failing, and Bill Clinton has long-since been "sheep dipped" for
his role of diversionary fall guy.
Tom Valentine, host of *Radio Free America*, has a slightly
different slant. As reported in The Spotlight of 11/11/96, "some
insiders are saying the charges and arrest [of Chuck Hayes] are
politically motivated because Hayes is allegedly working with
Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr." Valentine reportedly has
predicted that upcoming scandal hearings may wind up further
destroying public confidence in the government. He agrees with
this observer that the whole situation is deliberate, yet differs
as to its purpose: "When the truth hits the 'sheeple' like a ton
of bricks, the mainstream will be traumatized. What kind of
gimmick will be offered by the manipulators -- a new world
Adding to the boiling cauldron is unrest within the military.
According to Mr. Skolnick, there have in the past few years been
several military plots to arrest Bill Clinton. Says Skolnick,
"Some contend it would be justified under the Military Code."
Currently, according to the Chicago journalist and crusader
against corruption, "Clinton has quietly ordered total
surveillance on all the flag officers, more than 400 Generals and
Admirals. He wants to know who is plotting to arrest him."
In his current recorded message (312-731-1100), Mr. Skolnick
foresees imminent indictments, including of First Lady Hillary
Clinton. Says Skolnick, "Some expect Hillary may take up
residence in a foreign country having no extradition treaty with
the U.S., such as Ireland." If this occurs, perhaps her new
neighbor will be disgraced Mexican ex-president Carlos Salinas,
now also hiding out in Ireland.
Post-election analysis: Eruption of Clinton scandals will
coincide with economic collapse. Clinton will be the scapegoat
for public anger. Like Oswald, he will divert wrath from the
real killers, in this case the killers of the economy.
Complicating things will be Bill Clinton's ability, as Chief of
the Executive branch, to stall the process. Lurking on the
sidelines is a disgruntled military, with power of their own.
