“Until we demand accountability and forsake all else for the truth without fear of marginalization, without fear of retaining our lifestyles and living standards, and with the personal honesty and integrity expected of us by our Creator, we will continue to be deceived unto our deaths.“– Doug Hagmann
It was on a hot and humid Washington afternoon exactly 21 years ago today that the lifeless body of Vincent W. Foster, deputy White House counsel and personal attorney to both President William Jefferson Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, was found in Fort Marcy Park, located on the outskirts of Washington, DC. The cause of death was a single gunshot wound to his head fired from a small caliber weapon.
The cause of his death was officially ruled as a suicide, and except for a small number of truth-seeking investigators, the case has long been closed. This, despite the forensic evidence that is indicative of homicide, and the proven fact that individuals tampered with not only the crime scene, but the office and personal effects of Mr. Foster.
Considering the seriousness of the news headlines of today, it is reasonable to ask why valuable print space should be given to an apparent tragic incident that happened over two decades ago, and recalled only by people now reaching “middle age.” The reason, I contend, is that the American people were sold—and readily bought into—a lie with regard to the death of Mr. Foster.
Of critical importance, it was a lie perpetrated by many of the very same people who still hold the reins of power and influence inside and outside of the DC Beltway. It is an incident, one of many, that is reflective of a continuing course of criminal conduct by our elected leaders and appointed officials. It is an illustration of the ineffectiveness of a so-called free press, or worse, its collusion with leadership to hold the government accountable on behalf of the American people they are supposed to serve. It is an example of how we, as Americans, possess short attention spans. It is an illustration of how the majority of Americans so readily accept absurd explanations to avoid the embarrassment of being labeled a member of the “conspiracy fringe.” It is an illustration of how many political pundits with large audiences have squandered, or perhaps more accurately abused their platforms by deliberately being misleading or even being AWOL in holding those in power accountable for their lawlessness.
The blatant lies surrounding the death of Vince Foster over two decades ago, left unchecked by the corporate controlled media, partisan pundits on both sides of the political spectrum, and the “average” American’s acceptance of those lies, however readily or reluctant, have collectively emboldened the criminal cabal within our government to continue their malevolent agenda. We see the results of this in today’s headlines.
Today, some Americans are finally voicing their outrage over the lawlessness of the IRS, the attack in Benghazi, Libya, that exposed the largest weapons running operation in history in direct violation of U.S. and international criminal law under the Clinton State Department, and other headlines of horror. Yet, these very same people, whether they occupy positions behind a podium, a microphone, or a keyboard, remained silent about the glaring inconsistencies associated with the death of a high ranking White House official.
Why, then, should we expect anything different from this same clique of criminals and their fact-challenged facilitators today?
These are the same people who have readily embraced the forgery of the Renegade-in-Chief’s bona fides of constitutional eligibility, calling us “birthers,” racists and bigots for merely demanding the truth amid a sea of lies. From the Foster murder to the Obama eligibility issue and every criminal activity between and beyond, many pseudo-conservatives have chosen the path of least resistance for the sake of their careers and the futures promised to them, selecting silence over exposure, misdirection over truth. Their search of the truth, if at all, has been placating and gratuitous.
At least the push from the Progressives has been more transparent in its deceptiveness. The Progressives, or those closest to the Renegade-in-Chief and his assembly of anarchists, and those who have made him their messiah, shamelessly lie with impunity. Without even the slightest objection from a captured and castrated press, they look into the cameras and tell Americans that our borders are secure, the economy is recovering, and the planet has never been as peaceful as it is today. Much like the forensics relating to the murder of Vince Foster, their assertions remain unchallenged.
The situation would be almost laughable if it were not so serious. It would be the subject of mockery if our future, and the future of our children and grandchildren, did not hang in the balance.
When an individual or group is given the ability to kill with impunity and manipulate the media through collusion or coercion, while permitted by the people to remain in positions of power, we should not be surprised by our descent into tyranny. In many ways, our descent is with our consent, either by commission or omission.
Until we demand accountability and forsake all else for the truth without fear of marginalization, without fear of retaining our lifestyles and living standards, and with the personal honesty and integrity expected of us by our Creator, we will continue to be deceived unto our deaths.
It’s been 21 years since the murder of Vincent Foster, yet we have never been told the truth about his death. Obviously, the liars and their lies existed for decades previous and in the decades since. By not demanding the truth then, before, or after, the purveyors of perjury have only accelerated their perversion of truth.
We must stop “fostering” the lies.
