Donald Trump; Gary Aldrich Redux: It’s 1996 Once Again


Guest Editorial:

by Eric Dondero

The year was 1996. An FBI Agent named Gary Aldrich quit the force after 26 years and released a book called “Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House.” He alleged wild sex parties in the White House. He even reported on hot rumors within the White House of the President having Sex with staffers.
He was called a “kook,” a “rightwing extremist.” His book was written off as pure trash, even though it was a bestseller.

Of course, a little more than a year later, information began to surface that President Clinton had had a longtime illicit affair with a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky. More allegations soon came out of wild sex acts within the Oval Office involving cigars, and other “sex toys.”

Aldrich was completely vindicated. But he never really got credit outside of conservative media circles. No mea culpas from the liberal media, No media types stepped forward to admit they were wrong. No big interviews for Aldrich on the major networks congratulating him for being right all along.
Rather he just faded into obscurity.

Fast forward to 2011. For years, going way back to the 2004 US Senate race in Illinois there have been serious allegations about Barack Hussein Obama’s mysterious background. Documents seem to be missing; college transcripts, published articles of editorials, even a missing birth certificate.

Democrats and liberal media claim “it exists,” it’s just not accessible due to Hawaii law. Yet, newly-elected Governor Neal Abercrombie failed to locate the document after an extensive search. He had vowed that he would “put an end to the issue once and for all.”

Liberals lie. In 1996 and ’97 the liberal media circled the wagons around Clinton. Til the bitter end they insisted that the President couldn’t have possibly had sex with “that tramp Monica.”
When it all finally came out that Clinton had been lying all along they just got mum. They moved along to other matters quicker than you could say “Montecristo.”

Today the liberal media and Democrat politicians are lying through their teeth over the missing Obama birth certificate. They are now in full-fledged attack mode against Donald Trump (Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann). Like they labeled Aldrich, they are calling Trump and others asking questions about Obama’s highly suspicious background, as “far-out kooks,” and fringe figures who shouldn’t be believed.

Par for the course. But worse are the so-called conservatives and libertarians who are siding with the liberal media and politicians on the birth certificate issue.

Take your average Ron Paul supporter for instance; largely silent on Obama’s background. Even worse, some Ron Paulists are even joining in with the trashing of Trump, Palin and Bachmann.
One wonders what the Paulists, and other so-called conservatives and libertarians who believe Obama’s story hook, line and sinker, will say when Trump and others finally expose the truth.

It will be Aldrich redux. The only difference this time is that Trump will not fade away. He’s more likely to be elected our next President.

Our view:  Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice…

Trump and and the birther crowd appear to be missing the point.

The Public has the right and the duty to demand of every candidate and public servant that they disclose full bona fides. Birthplace, citizenship record, military service record, academic record, travel records – anything the Public wishes to view. It is both reasonable and responsible to demand that every candidate post their documents for public scrutiny. No exceptions. On that basis there simply is nothing untoward about demanding this of The Former President Elect.

To the contrary: The onus is on 2012 candidate Obama to make good on the demand. It is sheer blithe arrogance that keeps The Won from a candid up-front publication of his documents and record. We are told that there is nothing to hide and rather so very much there of which The Former President Elect ought to be proud. Fine! Where then is the transparency we were solemnly promised? In a sick twist, we are offered instead invisibility.

If a candidate has genuine need of privacy they should stay from public service. If they seek public office they must offer their full resume.  If a candidate has lied to the Public, justice must be served.

UPDATE:  Did White House aid David Plouffe call Trump’s inquiry “sideshow behavior”?  Seriously? Memo to Plouffster: If you’re going to be fake, laddie, at least be accurate.  (Hat tip: Drudge.)

    I had completely forgotten about Aldrick, and yes, the Enquirer got all the glory. I agree with both of you. While the onus is on Obama, that doesn’t help the American people because he is a scam artist. I do believe we will know the truth one day. I firmly believe Nancy Pelosi knows the truth because she certified his nomination without attesting to him meeting Constitutional requirement to every State except Hawaii. I received a copy of the certification to the state of Oklahoma, last week, from both parties. Pelosi’s definitely does not attest to meeting requirements, Boehner’s clearly does. If the story is true that she certified Obama to Hawaii only as meeting Constitutional meat, then Pelosi is involved. And the story goes that Hawaii requires such certification.

    We must, never ever let this happen again, and if a state, maybe Massachusetts, does not require attestation, then this has to be a federal law.

    Great article. I will link this in my of today.

    Dear Readers: Please bookmark Liberty Belle’s website Maggie’s Notebook if you haven’t already. More than a “notebook” – it’s sheer weighty thump-factor delivers.

    Thanks Maggie! Assuming the next AG will be, um, Mark Levin… (Please Please oh Please!)

    Ran, thank you! Now wouldn’t that be fabulous for this country to have Mark Levin as AG?
