Hillary Clinton supporters will hate the
new movie that premiered last night in Washington, D.C.
Although the movie is about their
idol, executive producer David N. Bossie is hoping that Obama and John Edwards supporters will pounce on it with glee to warn
voters of the dangers of a third Clinton presidency.
Bossie, a former congressional investigator, says he intentionally released
"Hillary: the Movie: before the Super Tuesday primaries in February to give pause to Democrats weighing their choices in the
The movie was written and edited by veteran documentary film maker Alan Peterson
for Citizens United, a conservative political action group based in Washington, DC.
Far from a rehash of the 1990s, "Hillary: the Movie" is like the sediment
at the bottom of an old wine bottle. It is the hard, crystallized essence of Hillary’s contribution to the Clinton years.
The Clinton camp is hoping that Americans are weary of the decade of scandals
that plagued Bill Clinton’s eight years in the White House, and dismiss attempts to dredge up the scandals as “old
But don’t worry, says former Clinton pollster Dick Morris, who writes
regularly for Newsmax. If you thought you’d had enough of the old scandals, “the good news is, we’ll get
Morris says he parted ways with the Clintons after he saw Hillary hire private
investigators and retired intelligence officers to track down and harass the women who were threatening to reveal the sexual
antics of her husband in the White House.
“I do not want that woman in charge of the IRS, the FBI, or the Justice
Department,” Morris says in the movie.
Hillary: the Movie
The Clinton camp is trying this week to get the movie suppressed on grounds
that it violates federal election rules on political advertising. The Federal Election Commission, which has been deadlocked
in recent months between Democrats and Republicans, will hold a rare hearing on Wednesday to hear the case.
Bossie and his lawyers argue that the 90-minute movie does not qualify as
political advertising, because it contains no endorsement of any candidate, Republican or Democrat.
On the contrary, Bossie told Newsmax at Monday’s night’s premier
at the AMC Loew’s cinema in Georgetown that he hoped the biggest audience for the film would be Democrats in the Obama
and Edwards camp, who could benefit form a hard-hitting documentary on Hillary’s scandal-plagued public career but were
unwilling to put out the information themselves.
"Hillary: the Movie" runs several clips from the John Edwards presidential
Web site that compare statements made by Clinton on the campaign that would appear to flatly contradict each other.
In one well-known clip, Hillary is seen at a Democrat debate saying she favored
driver's licenses for illegals and that she opposed them.
The film begins with a quote from John Edwards warning Democrats of “selective
memory” in remembering the Clinton years.
Bossie and film editor Alan Peterson have not only produced an extremely professional
and entertaining movie. They have also made news.
"Hillary: the Movie" contains the oft-quoted but never viewed footage that
ABC News documentary filmmaker Cyrus Nowrasteh was forced to cut from his controversial made-for-television docudrama, "The
Road to 9/11."
The three-minute clip is shocking in its direct portrayal of National Security
Adviser Sandy Berger, when he gave the order to a CIA paramilitary team in Afghanistan to stand down from an assassination
attempt on Osama bin Laden.
Nowrasteh, whose exclusive interview in the movie should be front-page news,
reveals that ABC-Disney has prevented the DVD release of his movie under pressure from the Clinton camp, so it won’t
adversely affect Hillary’s chances to win the presidency.
“I believe they are criminally guilty of distoring history,” Nowrasteh
The suppression of the DVD “is all about Hillary’s race for the
White House,” he adds.
Another shocker in "Hillary: the Movie" that many Clinton-watchers may have
forgotten is Hillary’s direct role in the controversial pardon of Puerto Rican terrorists convicted of murdering four
persons in a New York city restaurant bombing in 1975.
Bossie found the son of one of the victims, who was just nine when his father
was brutally murdered, as well as one of the FBI investigators involved in prosecuting and convicting the terrorists.
Together, they revisted the scene of the murder and walked viewers through
a moving re-enaction of the events.
Hillary was directly responsible for the 1999 pardon, former Clinton confidant
Dick Morris alleges in the movie, because she had no New York roots and needed to “connect” with Hispanic constituents
in order to win her 2000 Senate bid.
While the movie repeatedly warns viewers of the implications of a Hillary
presidency on our national security and our economy, it’s most poignant warning is contained in the one-line dedication
of the movie that scrolls across the screen at the end in memorium of Barbara Olson, the wife of former U.S. Sollicitor General
Barbara Olson was on Flight 77 that was flown into the Pentagon by al-Qaida
terrorists on Sept. 11, 2001, and called her husband several times from the plane just seconds before she died, providing
key eyewitness information on the terrorists and the hijackings.
"Hillary: the Movie" was a subtle reminder that the Clinton administration
bears a huge responsibility to those who died on that day for having missed at least eight opportunities to kill Osama bin
Laden. The administration failed to act out of political cowardice and moral equivalence.
