Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 8 Num. 86

("Quid coniuratio est?")


By Sherman H. Skolnick

This is a story about various plots to remove Clinton. On April 17, 1995, two days before the bombings in Oklahoma, a planeload of top military brass was sabotaged and crashed in Alabama, near a secret Delta Force base, killing all on board.

Under the Military Code, they were planning to arrest their Commander-in-Chief, Clinton, for acts of treason. They had onboard a live prisoner-of-war, supposed to not exist, to prove the Pentagon and several Presidential administrations had lied about the P.O.W. issue in Southeast Asia. They all were murdered just prior to a planned press conference.

Those that know the facts contend somewhere historians will refer to them as a planeload of heroes. It was a real-life version of the movie, "Seven Days in May."

(A year later, former CIA Director William Colby disappeared in a so-called boat accident, and later, a body was recovered, supposedly his, and was buried. Prior to his disappearance, Colby had been doing a series of taped interviews for CBS's "60 Minutes" program, giving block-buster details showing the Pentagon and White House for years have lied about the P.O.W. issue. And that P.O.W.s, although alive, could not return to the U.S. because they knew too much from having been pressed into service as "mules" in the dope trade. A heavily-censored, watered-down version of these taped interviews was aired by "60 Minutes" just before Colby's body was supposedly "found" minus the life jacket his friends said he always wore when going out on his boat.)

(In a radio talk show with me, his close friend and confidant, John DeCamp, a lawyer from Lincoln, Nebraska, said Colby died not from a so-called "accident." Further, DeCamp confirmed that Colby was prepared to disclose that the P.O.W. "mules" were working for a dope smuggling operation orchestrated by General Colin Powell, his close crony, former Pentagon official Richard Armitage, and George Bush.)

In a series of reported meetings, from about July 4, 1996, to August 3, 1996, a delegation of top Democrats reportedly met Clinton, either in a room in the White House not the Oval Office, or in the nearby Executive Office Building. They told the President that the much expected federal criminal indictment of Hillary would burn down the Democrat Party. To back up their claims, they showed him a clandestine photograph of the indictment by the Independent Counsel, Kenneth Starr, expected to be released either between the Democrat Convention in Chicago and the November election, or right after the election -- an indictment charging Hillary with perjury and obstruction of justice.

The group demanded that Clinton either resign his office or state that he is not running for re-election, an announcement they insisted he make two days before the Convention. All, they said, for the good of the country and the Democrat Party.

Clinton would not give his decision, but instead, cursing and fuming, called the delegation "traitors," implying by that sinister term that he would use his frightening emergency powers, as president and commander-in-chief, to inflict reprisals on them all.

Then, one of the group reportedly hurled at him the accusation, "You are a heavy cocaine user, with booze, and you cannot be trusted to deal with worldwide emergencies." They reportedly said Al Gore would aid them under the 25th Amendment, Section 4, which provides for the Vice President to lead a delegation of executive department officials to make a written declaration to Congress that the President cannot carry out his powers and duties; whereupon, the Vice President immediately becomes the Acting President.

In the various meetings with Clinton, the delegation included at some of the confrontations reportedly Senator Edward Kennedy (Mass.), Senator John Glenn (Ohio), Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (N.Y.), and Congressman Charlie Rose (N.C.), among others. I wrote the first story about these clandestine meetings which some Democrats informed us that the delegation was chaired or orchestrated by Robert Strauss, the clout-heavy lawyer from Dallas, former head of the Democratic National Committee, and front man for the oil industry. The first version of this story ran worldwide on Internet.

On August 9, 1996, Strauss called me three times stating he was not there in person at such meetings. He refused, in one of the conversations, to answer my question whether he participated by intermediaries, by satellite, by picture-phone, by speaker-phone, or other high tech means. Strauss stated he is head of a 700-person law firm that he will send after me and that he will have me criminally prosecuted. When asked by me what criminal laws, if any, provide for the jailing of a journalist writing a story criticizing the White House, Strauss refused to elaborate. By the third conversation, he called me to tell me he was going to have me arrested, implying that he has the political muscle to mis-use the FBI and the Justice Department to falsely jail me.

On August 12, 1995, I complained to the FBI, to no avail, that Strauss was threatening me from another part of the country. The FBI and the Justice Department are not interested in complaints from outspoken commentators.

After one of the clandestine meetings, Clinton, hepped up on cocaine, believing Al Gore was part of the effort to unseat Clinton, by a coup attempt, reportedly told the Vice President, "You are fired!" Gore replied, "You can't do that," with Clinton reportedly retorting, "Well, then I'll have you murdered!"

The First Lady, apparently aware of plans to unseat Clinton in favor of Gore, asked a Gore relative, "Will the son-of-a-bitch pardon me?" -- implying Gore was taking over, she was about to be prosecuted for various crimes, and wanted to know if Gore as Acting President would grant her a presidential pardon.

Some of Gore's confidants have confided to us that they expect a Clinton-instigated assassination attempt on Gore. And savvy folks ask, "Hey, is Jay Rockefeller somewhere in this picture?"
