Bill Clinton had the DNC and all those who had tuned in, eating out of his hand, while he reminisced about he and Hillary's fictional love story and marriage.
He oozed about what a great woman she was, and her supreme skills as a mother and wife.
So began Bill Clinton's tender, rambling speech last night at the Democratic National Convention, a speech in which he described his wife Hillary as a natural leader, an excellent mother, and “the best change maker” he'd ever met. “I married my best friend,” he said.
Yet, those who live the realm of reality listened with perplexity, knowing the cover-up was orchestrated by Hillary in order to keep the Clinton's in power, despite Bill's womanizing ways.
Certainly, the women who have once again opened their lives up for public scrutiny in order to let truth regarding Bill's infidelity and crimes be known must be honored for their courage. It is easier for a victim to remain cloaked in anonymity than to stand before the world's court of condemnation and tell what happened to them. For the victims of Bill Clinton's sexual attacks, this is round two with Hillary and the Clinton machine. These ladies have nothing to gain and much to lose for once again coming forward with their stories, but they recognized the reality that another crime continues to be covered up by the Clintons and that they must be stopped.
Juanita Braoddrick has nothing to gain by her continued accusation except for long over-due justice.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

This woman’s story was thankfully highlighted by the brave, actual feminist Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien when she risked the wrath of Clinton and the entire media by embarrassing Hillary at a Townhall by daring to challenge Clinton, in public, to answer for the rape of Juanita Broaddrick.
Incredibly, Cosmopolitan magazine has published an article that claims Clinton family sets the bar at which married couples should aim.
It was a reminder that the Clintons are still together after 45 years of marriage, in spite of all the public humiliations they've faced. They've outlasted the Gores, the first two Trump marriages, and the first two Gingrich marriages. Could the Clintons be — and having grown up in a culture where their relationship was often a punchline, I never thought I'd say this — good marriage role models?
Interestingly, Cosmo writes that perhaps fighting for one's marriage vows may actually be a good thing and quotes a “relationship therapist” Esther Perel, who says, “monogamy “used to be one person for life. Today, monogamy is one person at a time.”
Good statistics on this are tough to come by, but it's generally believed that as many as three out of four married people will cheat at some point. Does that make all their marriages shams?
Certainly, it's not always worth staying in a relationship if you're being cheated on and miserable about it (or if you're miserable, period). But maybe it's worth asking: could it ever be just as noble to stay and work on a marriage through tough times as it is to leave when you or the person you're married to strays? We've done a good job getting rid of the stigma around divorce, but in doing so, have created one around the decision to keeping your vow to stay together no matter what.
So, Hillary is noble for staying married to Bill, in spite of the stacks of evidence that he has committed crimes against woman and Hillary has helped delete this evidence so they can keep their power and position intact.
Women like Linda Tripp know the real grim fairy-tale that is the Clinton marriage. They have experienced the wrath of scorned Hillary, not because of her husband's philandering ways but because the stories could jeopardize her path to the presidency.
Like many Americans, Tripp is disgusted by the way not only Hillary presents herself but the way the media treats her and Bill. For all the hysteria over sexism and violence against women, they are silent over the dozens of women who have claimed to be victimized by Bill. All that matters to them is that Hillary wins the election, so it’s no wonder Tripp is sickened by her posturing as a defender of women.
“She charged that Hillary Clinton not only knew about her husband’s exploits, ‘She made it her personal mission to disseminate information and destroy the women with whom he dallied.’
Tripp says she cringes at the sight of Clinton presenting herself as ‘a champion of women’s rights worldwide in a global fashion, and yet all of the women she has destroyed over the years to ensure her political viability continues is sickening to me.’
Tripp documented evidence of Lewinsky’s phone calls about her relationship with Bill Clinton and submitted the evidence to independent counsel Kenneth Starr, leading to the public disclosure of the affair. She explained to Klein that she did so because she believed her own life and Lewinsky’s were in danger, saying that Lewinsky was threatening Clinton with outing the relationship.
Tripp also used the interview to criticize what she says is the news media’s unwillingness to investigate the Clintons. She singled out and thanked Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report, declaring that without him “things would have been very, very different.'”
The blindness of the left is found in this statement:
“Everything she touched, she made better,” Bill Clinton said this spring at a stump speech for his wife soon after Trump started attacking their marriage. Bill was talking about her rampant do-gooding, but he could have been defending their life together. In the Clinton's marriage model, you screw up. You forgive. You grow. And you grow old, together, making new memories and celebrating old ones with the same person you've known since she was “a girl,” someone you fell in love with many years ago in the spring.
Hillary is a do-gooder and Bill is desperately in love with her still? Bill may have told a compelling fiction at the DNC, but now is truly the time to let the real history of the Clintons come to light.
“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.” Bill stuck to the possibilities in his speech, but America must know the truth.
