CLINTON, GORE COMPLICITY IN OIL PRICE-HIKES
One of the giant stories of the year, by any news organization's yardstick,
was the unprecedented run-up in oil prices. All but unreported, however, were
some of the hidden, but very real, reasons for the huge increases.
WorldNetDaily was virtually alone among the news media in reporting how the
clearly contributed to the dramatic increase in oil prices. "Contradictory
and self-serving policies," reported Ken Timmerman in November, "led the
Clinton-Gore administration to cause the current skyrocketing oil prices, say
Middle East and petroleum industry analysts." The former Time magazine
correspondent showed how, "by interfering in the oil markets in 1998 when prices
were perceived by some to be too low, the administration put into motion the
huge current run-up of prices, according to Matthew Simmons, who has tracked oil
prices for 30 years as the head of a Houston-based investment bank, Simmons
& Co. International.”
Another WorldNetDaily report spotlighting Clinton's and Gore's complicity in
raising oil prices proved to be a blockbuster – featured and discussed for
several consecutive days on the Rush Limbaugh show. In that story, Clinton approves oil-price
hikes, WND disclosed: "Oil ministers from OPEC nations have quietly told
national security advisers on Capitol Hill that the oil production cutbacks --
and resulting price increases -- are being implemented at the request of the
Clinton administration on behalf of Russia, Indonesia, Mexico and Iran.
"Russia, Mexico and Indonesia are reported to be directing their increased
oil profits toward paying back overdue Western loans," the article revealed.
"According to one government defense adviser, the windfall profits are part of a
larger scheme to use the American public to pay off failed and corrupt
investment schemes in the three countries."
THE REAL IMPACT OF CLINTON LAND GRABS
Roads across public lands in national forests are being quietly closed to
vehicles, horses, and even hikers. "Human exclusion zones" is the official term.
People are losing their homes and livelihoods with scarcely a notice by the mass
media. Entire industries -- cattle grazing, timber cutting, mining -- are being
shut down in the name of protecting the environment from any use by human
beings, including recreation.
In 1996, President Clinton used the 1906 Antiquities Act to create the
designation of Utah's 1.7 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National
Monument. Although no more of these controversial monument designations were
made for the next several years, beginning last January -- toward the very end
of his second term as president -- Clinton began designating more monuments in
rapid succession: 10 new monuments in all in 2000.
Although all the monuments are already public land, inside each monument
there are "inholdings" – private property, state parks, game reserves or other
non-federally owned parcels – that will all be bought eventually by the federal
But as reported by
WND's Sarah Foster, the really untold story in all of this is the cost to
the American public in loss of access to "their" lands. Restrictions are already
kicking in at Escalante, since its designation is now four years old: Roads are
being closed to the public, and the government wants to close the land off to
all off-road use. With no roads and no off-road use, essentially access will be
closed to humans. Property-rights advocates see this as a clear harbinger of
what will happen to other monuments in the future.
GORE'S CORRUPT TENNESSEE ACTIVITIES
Throughout this year's tense, near-radioactive presidential campaign season,
most of the establishment news media gave Gore a free pass when it came to his
role as No. 2 man in the most scandal-plagued administration in American
history. His illegal campaign fundraising, his lying to the FBI, his secret arms
deal with the Russians – all were given little attention and even less weight.
To fill this deficit, between early September and Election Day, Nov. 7, 2000,
WorldNetDaily published an exhaustive series of investigative reports by native
Tennessee reporters Charles Thompson and Tony Hays on Gore and his Tennessee
past -- including his vast connections to Soviet
operative Armand Hammer, alleged interference with various
Tennessee criminal investigations involving family and friends, and even
documented reports of Gore, the environmental champion, being a notorious polluter in
his home state.
As a result of these reports, claim radio, newspaper and
law enforcement representatives in Tennessee, Gore lost his home state and
its 11 electoral votes -- and thus lost the presidency.
