The Brock Files: An Introduction

The mainstream media (MSM) of this great nation are now reporting on the various strategies devised by Clinton Inc. to destroy the credibility of Bruno’s arch-rival, Donald Trump. Invariably (as even today) they cite The American Spectator’s former employee David Brock as an authority on how Clinton Inc. might achieve its ends without resorting to car bombs or to kneecapping. David is going to use the tactic of setting a multi-million-dollar reward for dirt on Donald, such as that Donald has had girlfriends in years past, he failed to tip a waiter at “21,” or that once he picked his nose in public. David learned this stunt from Larry Flynt, Bill Clinton’s Minister of Culture during the 1990s and the composer of one of Bill’s favorite operas, Pantyhosen.

Yet, before David fell head over heels for Hillary and before he followed the money trail to Clinton Inc., his research pretty much agreed with that of the other AmSpec writers, to wit: David established in the 1990s that the Clintons have a long record of subverting the law, enriching themselves through criminal means, and following practices that are commonplace in Third World countries. Though these practices are rarely attempted in American cities larger than Gary, Indiana. David’s judgment back then was that Hillary was pretty much a career criminal.

Now come news that a website, Zero Hedge, alleges that David is engaged in money laundering and from Mark Paoletta in the Daily Caller that David once lived dangerously as a reporter with a right-wing bent. Specifically, Paoletta notes, while the mainstreamers go after alleged right-wing hitmen like David Bossie and Steve Bannon, they give Brock a total pass on the dirty politics he’s been practicing in defense of Madame Hillary.

What’s more, they totally ignore the juicy reporting he did on Hillary and her hubby in his 1996 political biography, The Seduction of Hillary Rodham, of which Paoletta provides some morsels — as we will be doing as well in the following days.

It has all reminded me that many readers have forgotten David’s work and many more were not even born when the Clintons began their journey to the top of Democratic politics. So as a public service The American Spectator has reached back into its ample archives to bring our readers’ David’s earlier findings, and occasionally we shall even publish personal memoranda that David wrote to startled interns on our staff. These memorandums have apparently been long forgotten by him. This material will appear regularly here and may be used by the Clintons’ present political opponent, Donald Trump, free of charge. We expect that the FBI already has this material, but if our early work is helpful to them in any further investigations we are glad to oblige.

Incidentally, when during the Clinton years the FBI investigated this magazine at the recommendation of the Clinton White House, the FBI was always very polite toward us. I hope they will be polite with David.
