The Clinton Administration Is Guilty Of Treason

Timperlake and Triplett tell us clearly and conclusively why Bill Clinton is absolutely guilty of treason. Forget the myriad of other "gates", this is the mother of all scandals: treason by the President of the United States. To find out that Clinton and his minions are responsible for possibly endangering the very existence of this nation by allowing security secrets to be given and sold to communist China is beyond belief. If someone proposed this as a Hollywood script, he would be laughed out of town. But once again with this administration, truth is stranger than fiction. Just as complicit are the mainstream media and Democratic leaders who have helped cover-up, obstruct, and spin this story so as to absolve the Clinton administration from blame.

Well-researched and convincing

By trying to prove everything, the authors of this book did get a little too detailed and (by the end)almost dull. However, their major points are really irrefutable - it is impossible to deny the plain facts presented in the book that major foreign donors to the Clinton campaign later got incredible access to our national secrets. The evidence is all there - well-documented and painstakingly footnoted. I am not an anti-Clinton fanatic (voted for him first time around), and find a lot of the "conspiracy theories" ridiculous, however I could not help being convinced by this book. I think that anyone who reads it with an open mind will not be able to avoid coming to the conclusion that our national secrets are dangerously open to access by foreign powers (whether these powers are overtly hostile to us, or merely taking advantage of our secrets for business purposes is kind of irrelavent).

There Goes the Legacy Bill!

Mssrs Triplett and Timperlake unravel the Clinton campaign finance scandal. They show how Chinese government officials went about helping Bill Clinton get elected to the Presidency since he would allow them to get sensitive technology and leave them alone. They also show how Clinton and his flunkies gladly accepted this much needed assistance from their Communist benefactors.The book is almost pure fact. Where it is conjecture, the authors note it as such and always do a great job selling their case. The color photos are pretty damning too.Clinton and crew seem to be concerned about the impeachment putting a black mark on their legacy. They shouldnt worry about that. This book has sunk the Clinton legacy for eternity.

Who is "partisan?"

It's interesting to me that some people comment how the facts in this book have been refuted by the "mainstream press," considering that this book is a compilation of investigative work done by the New York Times. I have been reading the NY Times coverage of the China scandal since 1996, and am glad to see all of its damning evidence against the Clinton administration put together in one book. Also interesting to see the one-star reviewers say how "partisan" this book is while unable to refute any of the solid information it provides. It is thick reading, and actually doesn't cover as wide a time frame as I would like (Clinton's dealings with China started even before his presidency, in a December 1992 meeting between Bush, Clinton, and the Chinese prime minister), but other than that I thought it extremely well-done, thorough, and timely. The deep hollowing out that this president has done in two terms is staggering.

Forget High Crimes this is "Treason"

Every American owes it to themselves to read this book. Future generations will ask was Lewinsky more important than the " The Year of the Rat" One must come to the reality that the PRC thinks in terms of generations and decades not like we Americans who look at tomorrow as a future. Their clandestine work paid off in spades,China for years worked at inflitrating our system of Democracy,in the Universities, Press and Media Just look at their agents they sent from Asian nations who acted on their behalf. The book reads as a who's who in Corporate Asia. How about the Congressmen and women who we elect and so strongly support the China propaganda of open markets. Our leaders in Congress have sold out the American's in every trade policy for decades. No this is not a right wing review it is the truth Read this book before you regret not reading it. After spending trillions in defense of our nation since WWII the politicians sold out for pennies on the dollar. While Clinton professes that for the first time in years our children can go to bed knowing that their are no missles aimed at America He did forget to add that the USA's Loral and Hughes corporations made sure to make him a liar!
