Gennifer Flowers Says New Book Will Have "EXPLOSIVE STORY ADDITIONS TO THE CLINTON AFFAIR"

FLOWERS PUTTING CLINTON PHONE CONVERSATIONS UP FOR BID



Gennifer Flowers is putting the tapes of her recorded conversations with Bill Clinton during their 12-year affair on the auction block, Vegas Confidential learned Monday.

Flowers, who came forward during Clinton's 1992 Presidential election campaign with details of the relationship, said she decided to part with the tapes after renewed interest surfaced. She was offered $5 million by a Japanese collector in the 1990s, she said.

Asked about the timing of her announcement coming out as Hillary Clinton continues to slide in her presidential bid, I dont need to hurt Hillary. She is doing a fine job of that herself, along with her idiot husband. Karma is an interesting thing. If these two dont get elected, and they are a team, it will be karma coming back to visit them. It's about time."

When President Clinton denied the relationship during his presidential campaign, Flowers called a press conference played what she said were secretly recorded phone conversations.

"These are the tapes I brought forth as proof," she said.


Flowers, who lives in Las Vegas, sued Hillary Rodham Clinton, George Stephanopoulos, James Carville and other, accusing them of orchestrating a campaign to discredit her. Carville and Stephanopolous claimed Flowers doctored the tapes.

Flowers, 58, said she has kept the tapes "very safe all these years and I just recently received more interest and I said 'why not?'

"I certainly would enjoy the money for my future security. I dont have any guarantee what might be coming," she said.

Flowers is also exploring a new book with "explosive story additions to the Clinton affair," her publicist Bruce Merrin said in a release. The book "will contain a special item which must remain a protected secret until the book is published."

Do you really want Bill Clinton hanging around in the White House with nothing to do?

Flowers has never been debunked, by the way, and Bill was forced to admit he had an affair with her in a deposition in 1998 in the Paula Jones case. Bill's affairs in the 90s and alleged affairs since he left the White House with Lisa Belzberg and Belinda Stronach will likely come out in the GE and destroy Hil's electability -- especially after the Spitzer Fiasco.

117. Me too. Couple of points:
This is about BILL; the election is about HILLARY and HER qualifications, or lack thereof.

Personal matters such as this IMHO should be OFF THE TABLE for ALL candidates, regardless of party. I get just as pissed off when people try to slam McCain for his affairs, or bring up the fact that his current wife is a recovering addict - pathetic. Stick to the issues. I don't condone adultery, but I don't think it belongs in a presidential campaign. And the spouse is not the official running mate - this kind of crap just misdirects sheeple and allows them to ignore substantive matters.

It's a legitimate point, but I can't say I agree with using Gennifer Flowers as electability dealbreaker.

There are many more reasons why nominating Hillary is a bad idea, paramount amongst them the current vote and delegate count.

Like the Rev. Wright flap, this will be something that the Republicans will want to keep in the public eye through the GE. It's old news and it has nothing to do with Hillary, but it will server to tarnish the name "Clinton" in the minds of some voters ("Aw geez, not this shit again!").

Hillary needs to neutralize this ASAP. I hope she does.

Edit: I'm also against posting pictures of Gennifer Flowers. Even in soft focus... :puke:

This "vetted" crap is just that: crap. We're going to get to relive all the 1990's scandals, plus the new ones from the 2000's. We'll hear all the China accusations, plus new ones from India. And Pardongate, which Shrub pretty much swept under the rug (these families have a history of covering for each other) will re-rear it's ugly head.

So Bill had at least TWO long term affairs going at the SAME time. He had a nearly
20 year affair with a woman from the mid seventies to the early nineties. What a

81. Because they need to blunt the damage to Obama's candidacy done by Rev Wright
Edited on Fri Mar-14-08 09:17 AM by Tellurian
There is nothing Jennifer Flowers can say in her book that can top Eliot Spitzer's foray at the Emperor's Club. Sex play in the 70's and 80's was fairly tame compared to the kinkiness considered standard fare in the 21st Century.

Flowers will end up using her books as doorstops in every room of her house. boring!

However, the hate-filled sermons given by Rev Wright to the Obamas over the last 20 yrs has had an effect on them. Why not? He's a Reverend, a man of God, and he's God Damns America in his warped hate filled, racist, mind. Michelle said it herself. The first time she was ever proud of America in her adult life, was just a week or two ago. She is a product of Rev Wright's speeches. Not someone I'd want as First Lady inhabiting the White House representing America.

here's the thread you never checked in on...
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



Daily Kos Link
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/3/13/91118/3142

I just read an interesting blog entry about Hillaryis44.org which accused the bloggers of the site of creating false advertising click-through.

Each time a page is loaded at hillaryis44.org, the entire html page is loaded in your browser. At the end of each page, in the 'footer' area, is a java based script. This script specifically generates 'onclick' events for each and every link in the 'u' document where the html redirect links are located before anyone clicks on them.

...

In the above script we see that it determines that it is bulding an http referral string in order to send a message to the 'onlick' tracker that the links in the 'u' document have been clicked.

So, in short, hillaryis44.org appears to be a site dedicated to scamming Hillary Clinton supporters into generating advertising revenue for the domain owners by clandestinely counting hits to links that no one ever clicks. They make this appear legitimate to whomever is paying for advertising by having a significant and consistent amount of traffic to their site.

111. Not to fix the problem
The DU thread that you said you read has a number of explanations.

It pretty much boils down to ignorance and/or incompetence by allowing a malware exploit through using old HTML creation software; or intentional fraud.

The site owners have (I understand) been notified. Yet the code is still there. Again, this points to either ignorance/incompetence, or intentional fraud.

I'm not saying which explanation is correct. But the site owner needs to get it cleaned up ASAP. The fact that the redirect code exists is not in dispute - you can simply go to the hillaryis44.org front page, and view the page source. You don't have to be a genius to spot that 1/2 of the HTML on that page are stealth redirects in order to generate ad revenue.

15. Despite all the utter vile trash from DU clinton camp today, I still can't support this.
This women's present actions are nothing but pure opportunism, and this sort of trash has absolutely zero to do with Clinton's qualifications for president.

I'm not stooping to DU Clinton supporter level by supporting this nonsense. Sorry.

17. She is dragging out those stupid "doctored" tapes yet again?
Edited on Fri Mar-14-08 12:26 AM by saracat
I think I'm going to write a book about screwing Clinton. It would be as creible as hers. Remeber the old Bette Midler routine with the Harlettes"I screwed Jck Kennedy, we screwed Jack kennedy, They screwed jack kennedy" ? That is what this reminds me of.She wants her paltry 15 minutes of fame extended to half an hour.

She may have screwed Bill once or twice but she was proved to have lied about a long term affair. Maybe it will be murder or drug use, but that sbeen said before too.Oh my , what could she say and why would anyone care?

20. Well, fuck
I was hoping at least for a decent Dark Wave remix of some of the (no-doubt-silly-and-dumb-but-essentially-none-of-my-fucking-business) things President Clinton might have said on them tapes. Some early takes, false starts, bonus tracks. Maybe an acoustic arrangement of "Bridge to the 21st Century".

Paul McCartney could give great advice on how best to drain the last drop of blood from a stone, product-wise.

Instead, all we get is the original tapes. Analog goddamn tapes. Pffft. Why not 8-track? Or wax cylinders?

But sure, Gennifer, whatthefuckever. Because there might still be 4 or 5 people in the country who don't know about these "events".

Whoops, guess I forgot that young, vibrant generation of College Republicans waiting for their testicles to drop and eagerly trying to understand why Dad used to walk around the house with a glass of Chivas in his hand, muttering, "Goddamn Clinton! We've got to topple this bastard." Stupid little needy, cowardly, gormless shits that they are, don't they at least deserve this?

that Bill had 2 affairs with 2 different blondes that year, and reports out of his Harlem offices is that he is still the same old Houn Dawg.

48. The "other woman" is generally very weak with little self-esteem and
is not stable enough emotionally to have a marriage of her own. She will simply accept sneaking around with a married man instead, and even help him hide the fact that he is sleeping with her. That's not a strong woman. It's ludicrous to argue that it is.

serial philanderer.

If she doesn't mind sharing her husband with a bunch of women, why should you?

If Hill really minded, she would have been gone a long time ago. But then what would she have done?

what is it that makes you obama folks so infatuated about bill's penis? Damn, you all are so concerned more so then Timmy Russert and all he can think about is "clinton's cock, clinton's cock.....

And I say this as a photographer....The cleavage screams "matron" (and an older one) and the hand is remeniscent of a mummy....We all recognize heavy make-up and the plasticly arts when we see them on her face....But the fact that you have to lay that much diffusion on a basic boudoir shot is almost spooky...Whether Bill popped her I have no idea and it matters even less, though it probably speaks more poorly for his libido than his judgement ...but the spectacle more reminds me of an ancient aunt who still thinks she's hot than the end of anyone's campaign...And I'm forced to write the above though I lean Obama...

83. I think we're sadly seeing exactly why she chose to stay with Bill..
It's not as much about a marriage as an "arrangement" to be two of the most powerful people in the world.

Honestly, I really don't think the cheating bothers Hillary as much as we think it does - in fact, if she's 1/2 as smart as we're lead to believe, I have a feeling she knew (or currently knows) about all of them. With their "arrangement" I think the bigger issues is that Bill wasn't descreet enough to not get caught- and THAT infuriates Hillary. I don't think she minds that he's with other women nearly as much as she minds looking like the victim, because she really isn't one - but how would that play out in the media? It wouldn't - so she has to sort of play that role even if she doesn't want to.

I may be totally wrong, but i've seen quite a few marriages of convinence - and some of them work out far better then marriages of love.

92. Prediction: Flowers will be peddling "Hillary is a lesbian" swiftboat type rumors
Edited on Fri Mar-14-08 10:10 AM by HamdenRice
The right wing is already developing a paper trail about this, and we can't just close our eyes and make it go away.

Flowers alleged back in the 90s that Bill told her that Hillary is a lesbian. More recently, the rw blogosphere is repeating rumors that Hillary is having a relationship with a senior staff member, Huma Abedin, who also happens to be of Pakistani descent and whose mother is a prominent Muslim scholar in the middle east.

Of course progressives don't care whether Hillary is a lesbian or not. But the way this swiftboat campaign is alread developing, it's going to be impossible for Hillary to disprove it. Or worse, she's going to be force to say something like, "I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Abedin..." which will bring back all the Monica fatigue of the 90s.

Flowers was the main source of the lesbian rumors of the 90s, and the fact that she is resurfacing now is no coincidence. Notice the timing: this so called "explosive" information is not going to be about Bill, whose personal life is now irrelevant. This is going to be an attack on Hillary just in time for the election if she gets the nomination.

Flowers is probably peddling this now, however, because if it becomes clear that Hillary can't win, then Flowers allegations become irrelevant and her book's value dwindles to nothing. She is firing this out now before it becomes worthless because she is worried Hillary won't get the Dem nod.

If Hillary does somehow pull it out, though, she cannot win election in the middle of a swiftboat campaign claiming that she has a Muslim lesbian lover.

Edited on Fri Mar-14-08 10:18 AM by HamdenRice
It was a very famous, vulgar quote at the time. Flowers claims that in the context of talking about sex, Bill told her (Flowers), "honey she eats more ****** than I do."

120. I may have just had my fingers in my ears when it came to all these
women falling out of the woodwork at the time. It was a truly disgusting period in America's history, and I'm not looking forward to reliving it. I'd prefer if these stories just went away, but as long as there's a buck to be made, I'm sure they'll keep coming forward.

178. Hillary's sexual orientation is a non-starter for a majority of Americans
Her votes and the policies she supported, as well as her character, are the only issues that should matter.

I doubt if many people would be surprised to find out that the Clintons' marriage is an open one. I know more than my share of couples like that, except that they are a lot nicer people than Bill and Hillary.

130. Why should Hillary be destroyed because of what her husband did?
Would you like to lose your job because your husband was unfaithful?

Aren't the Obamites now,(after the damage was done) complaining that Hillary is giving the Rethugs ammunition to use against Dems in he election? Isn't that what you are doing now? Funny how it's Ok for Obamites to publish information that hurts Hillary...but it's TERRIBLE if Hillary says something that hurts Obama. You can post trash about Bill Clinton so you can hurt Hillary... but Hillary is a monster for saying that McCain is more experienced that Obama. Talk about hypocrisy or a double standard!

131. You are not thinking clearly. Swing voters are not about to put Bill back in the White House
if he is still fooling around. Which he is. The media is just sitting on the story. One was even a married woman and the affair with Clinton broke up the marriage.

I can provide links and photos if you like.

Hillary is not electable, albeit through no fault of her own.

If she had divorced Bill this wouldn't matter.

157. The problem is, the affairs seemed to raise Bill's approval ratings and lower Hillary's
I don't think that's fair or even for that matter coherent, but America seems to grudgingly admire the Clenis but dislike those associated with it, particularly Hillary.

The simple fact is, the Clenis is one of the GOP's biggest fundraising and outrage-raising tools.

140. RE the photograph of Ms. Flowers, possibly supplied to the media by her
publicist, here's my conundrum.

I'm thinking there MUST be a message or characterization that the photo was selected to convey about Ms. Flowers.

But it seems to elude me.

Anybody have any thoughts?

152. That's not true, because Bill shtupped and then did not resign, PResident Gore never defeated Bush
So we got Iraq and a Depression plus the end of the world in global warming.

Shtupping and then NOT resigning (as Spitzer did) does have something to do with the way the world went after 1998.

Time to think again, no?

162. I'll tell you why. What happens if Bill's affairs from 2002 w/Belzberg and Stronach are revealed
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 02:10 PM by Dems Will Win
after Hillary gets the nomination. She can't win then. That;s all it will take, especially after Spitzer.

Then We have Bush III term and we truly are screwn. Or even if Hil gets in, you've got the fate of the planet riding on whether or not Hil maintains her political power and that in turn is riding on Bill Clinton being able to keep his pants zipped while roaming the White House with little officially to do.

Thems might big odds for our planet to have to surmount in my calculation, cold and hard as it may be.

My family, myself and the world have already suffered enough from Clinton sex scandals losing elections. We don't need to lose another one.

161. She wants compensation, not vindication.
Why else would she allow herself be considered a liar for more than a decade when her tapes could vindicate her in an instant? Get your tapes authenticated (does Bill deny having phone conversations with you?) and put an end to this, Gen! Surely your personal integrity is worth more to you than the price of an auction or book deal!

This has no more place here than some of the racist crap that's been posted about Obama. Can we try acting like Democrats here people? Posting Gennifer Flowers crap is pretty low.

Even if it were all true, how does it reflect on Hillary and her ability to be an effective president?

170. She cannot be effective if Bill can't keep his pants zipped.
Look how different history would have been if there had been no Monica.

Incumbent PResident Gore would have defeated Bush by 7 points. No Iraq, No Depression.

Instead, the Clintons did not do the honorable thing. Hillary demanded that he not resign and so the Democratic Party went down in flames.

Spitzer did the right thing the Clintons did not. If Bill has more affairs, it will weaken Hillary, and she will be forced to lie about it, as they always did before.

You cannot be an effective President after having been caught lying to the voters.

By the way, I could list all the sex lies the Clintons have been caught lying on, if you want to see that.

176. If there is anything "explosive" left, it has to something other than sex
I think any sex revelations regarding Bill Clinton will generate a collective yawn from the public. OTOH, if the "explosive" revelation involves something involving criminal behaviour, or some lurid aspect of the Clintons' marriage, then Ms Flowers will get another 15-minutes of fame but not much beyond that.

Having the anti-Clinton cottage industry back in business is to be expected if the Clintons are returned to power.
