Secret Clinton Memos

Hillary Clinton has been campaigning for the Presidency her entire life. But, ever since she OFFICIALLY announced her candidacy, she has claimed that she is “uniquely qualified” for the job of President of the United States. In her own words:


“I wouldn't be in this race and working as hard as I am unless I thought I am uniquely qualified at this moment in our history to be the president we need.”

Of course, no one can really figure out what her “unique qualifications” are. Is it because she was First Lady? In that case, I guess Laura Bush is “uniquely qualified” as well. How about Lady Bird Johnson, for that matter? Was she “uniquely qualified?”

Perhaps, it is Hillary’s 7 years as a junior Senator which "uniquely qualifies" her. Although, the major problem there is that, since being elected to the Senate, SHE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING. She hasn’t authored a single piece of meaningful legislation. She has no major Senatorial accomplishments to speak of. So, what in her entire career as a junior Senator from New York “uniquely qualifies” her to be President of the United States?

Going back to her days as First Lady, perhaps it was the important projects that she spearheaded. In 1993, she chaired a cabinet-level Task Force to devise a new plan for our Health Care System. This new plan became known as HillaryCare. Perhaps HillaryCare is what “uniquely qualifies” her to be President of the United States.

Although, that is doubtful. You see, HillaryCare was an abysmal failure (If you don’t know much about the plan, look it up. It was the epitome of socialized medicine with fascist controls to maintain it).

For the past several years, the Clinton camp refused to release any of the internal memos and documents concerning HillaryCare. Why did it fail? What plans did they have in place? What was going on behind-the-scenes? The public wanted to know, but the Clintons wanted to keep all of that in the dark.

That is, until now.

You see, the Clinton Library has released some of the memos from those involved with the HillaryCare Task Force. Looking over them, it is not hard to figure out why the Clinton’s didn’t want this stuff to see the light of day.

Via Judicial Watch:

A June 18, 1993 internal Memorandum entitled, “A Critique of Our Plan,” authored by someone with the initials “P.S.,” makes the startling admission that critics of Hillary’s health care reform plan were correct: “I can think of parallels in wartime, but I have trouble coming up with a precedent in our peacetime history for such broad and centralized control over a sector of the economy…Is the public really ready for this?... none of us knows whether we can make it work well or at all…”


“P.S.” is, most likely, Paul Starr, senior advisor for President Clinton’s health care reform plan. In this memo, P.S. admits that HillaryCare would be a broad, centralized control over a huge section of the economy. In addition, P.S. clearly states that the Federal Bureaucracy might not even be able to make the new health care plan work.

Go figure that the Government wouldn’t be able to make something work properly. Who would have ever guessed that?

But, if Statist controls over your health care isn’t enough to open your eyes, how about this? Witness some of the tactics this Task Force wanted to use to deal with critics of HillaryCare:

A “Confidential” May 26, 1993 Memorandum from Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) to Hillary Clinton entitled, “Health Care Reform Communications,” which criticizes the Task Force as a “secret cabal of Washington policy ‘wonks’” that has engaged in “choking off information” from the public regarding health care reform. The memorandum suggests that Hillary Clinton “use classic opposition research” to attack those who were excluded by the Clinton Administration from Task Force deliberations and to “expose lifestyles, tactics and motives of lobbyists” in order to deflect criticism.

“Classic opposition research.” That’s what they call it. It’s Washington-talk for “Let’s dig up some dirt.” Rockefeller specifically says that they should “expose the lifestyles, tactics, and motives” of their opposition. For a party of “Liberals” who are supposed to be so ACCEPTING of different lifestyles and individual choices, they certainly don’t seem to be too accepting or open-minded. They are willing to use those lifestyles as weapons against their opponents.

Are you seeing the big picture?

But, get this. This is one of my favorite parts. In the same memo, Senator Rockefeller discusses several strategies for using the media to push their agenda. Here is a very eye-opening line:

“Senator Rockefeller also suggested news organizations “are anxious and willing to receive guidance [from the Clinton Administration] on how to time and shape their [news] coverage.”

The media was “anxious and willing” for President Clinton to instruct them on how to sell this health care plan. Bias? What media bias?

They were ANXIOUS to receive their marching orders from the Clinton Administration! Amazing.

Then we come to the last memorandum in this report. It further reveals the fascist tactics that this Task Force was willing to use to see HillaryCare implemented:

A February 5, 1993 Draft Memorandum from Alexis Herman and Mike Lux detailing the Office of Public Liaison’s plan for the health care reform campaign. The memorandum notes the development of an “interest group data base” detailing whether or not organizations “support(ed) us in the election.” The database would also track personal information about interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, “biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congresspeople.”

Does this not scare you? This database would track whether or not particular groups supported them, as well as any and all personal information the Clinton Administration would need to destroy their opponents!

So let’s recap. The HillaryCare Task Force tried to implement a plan that would represent an unprecedented broad and centralized control over a huge section of the economy the likes of which have never been equaled during peacetime in the history of our country. In order to see this Fascist plan established, they relied on equally fascist methods involving secrecy, smear tactics, and a vast misuse of Government resources to gather and track personal information about American citizens.

To top it all off, President Clinton’s own health care advisor didn’t know if the Federal Bureaucracy could effectively establish and maintain such a sweeping control over America’s health care system.

I guess this is what “uniquely qualifies” Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States. God, help us.
