118. Octafish seems to be saying that Clinton was bought off by one of Poppy's bankers
(Stephenson) during the campaign season. That raises questions for me:

Why the hell did the powerbrokers need to dump Poppy and bring in (who they thought was going to be) a "puppet"? Or did they finance Clinton cause they wanted him to be the candidate because they thought he was the best candidate to lose against Poppy? And did they put conditions on the money to Clinton? Squash BCCI and other related crimes if you are elected and we'll give you campaign cash?

I don't think Clinton is that stupid that he was sucked in by accident. It's possible he was manipulated and conned but when it comes to money and economics (and BCCI and BFEE and Halliburton and probably most especially the economic potentialities of hedge funds...) that is Clinton's finest game.

But it begins to point to some uncomfortable stuff about Hillary as the next President - I know a lot of people are uncomfortable with the Bush/Clinton/Clinton/Bush/Bush/Clinton(?) dynasty just cause it's a dynastic political ruling party thang and that just "feels" wrong, but perhaps there is a bigger reason to oppose a Clinton candidacy?

Hedge fund money laundering, contract manipulation, arms trading, global political destabilization etc. are dark shit.

:tinfoilhat: have I earned this with this post??
