Another work colleague has gone on record as believing that conditions in the detention facilities are being "exaggerated" by the media. She wouldn't be pinned down on whether she believed there had been actual deaths, of course.

See I know you're going for "funny" but all you're really getting is "boomer".

Snopes on Clinton Body Bags. Pure bullshit, but you got to love that title.

Apparently whenever anyone who was ever in contact or even met the Clintons dies, they were killed by the couple because they knew something about them.

I first read that as "boner".
(Funny thing is, even with that misreading I still thought "Yeah, that works out.")

I'm surprised the conspiracy buffs don't have Clinton on the grassy knoll in Dallas.

Well, he did meet Kennedy once.

My absolute most favorite entry in the list, an entry which will never be topped:

This is my favorite entry. Remember that Arkansas medical examiner, the one I said wasn’t always the most conscientious investigator on God’s green earth? Yep, we’re about to see him again. Fahmy Malak listed James Milam’s cause of death as a perforated ulcer, adding that Milam’s small dog afterwards ate the dead man’s head, accounting for Milam’s headless condition.

Milam’s daughter-in-law insisted Milam was murdered. She claimed Malak showed her photographs of the headless corpse, and the neck was cut clean. The Milam family has not attempted to legally challenge the ruling because of the expense, so we’ll never know which way the cat jumps, ulcer or murder.

Whatever killed him, Milam died three months before the Ives and Henry murders. What are we supposed to believe here, that Clinton conspirators knocked off someone who “had information on the Ives and Henry deaths” three months before Ives and Henry actually died? Wow, talk about a preemptive strike!

The Clintons knew that would end up leading to impeachment proceedings and when the conviction failed, it would give Bill a boost in the polls. So, it ultimately helped, which of course they knew it would in advance. It's 12th dimensional chess, if you would only open your eyes.

See? SEE?

Proof positive that Bill Clinton murdered JFK. I'm going to start a webpage.

Odd this isn't mention in conservepedia's Clinton body count page

You have to leave a couple of survivors to help prove you didn't kill the others.

"And none survived - really? Who told the tale?"

I like that the Clintons are somehow skilled at covertly murdering people without anyone finding out, while at the same time terrible at keeping their own secrets, so all these people need to be killed.

I've seen defenders of the 'Clinton Death List' and they are pretty arrogant S.O.B.'s. You're talking about people who are happy to assume that Vince Foster's wife was willing to accept paltry bribes to say her husband committed suicide.

Same folks claim to know better than psychologists about people's state's of mind before a suicide. They gleefully point to people saying Foster "seemed happy" right before his suicide, not realizing that happens when a depressed person has made up their mind to commit the act. Nope, in their minds 'seeming happy' means they were happy and therefore could not possibly suffer from depression.

The fact is, the people who even started the list have stated it was just a pure defamation tactic, and they just grabbed onto anyone with a Kevin Bacon number to the Clintons lower than 4 who died.

When you look at it you just find circles within circles, with an extra epicycle in leap years.

Fuck me. I once appeared in Howard Co., MD traffic court before the judge who years later presided over Linda Tripp's wiretapping case. Does that make my number 4?

Judge > Tripp> Lewinsky > Clinton

Did Tripp ever meet Clinton directly? Am I safe?

Those deaths are nothing more then a coincidence. Heck just look at all the people you've known. Out of all the people I know, a few have killed themselves, at least one has been killed by the police, a few died of medical issues, suicide. So there is no there, there.

That said I think the Clinton's are fine upstanding citizens who would never break the law in anyway.

I mean why take the chance?

Uh, I assume that’s sarcastic; they’re not the evil supervillains that the right wing CTs make them out to be but they’ve both had their share of legal difficulties. They’re not “crooks” but not perfect.

Know who else is associated with the Clintons? Hillary donor Donald Trump. Plus tjey spent a lot of time on stage together. And he's still alive.

Let's get with it, Clintons.
