Selling the Foster “Suicide” to Hillary Haters

by Dave Martin, D.C. Dave

If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. – Bertrand Russell

We have now come full circle with the latest attempt by the FBI and its favorite shill, Ronald Kessler, to sell the government and press myth that Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel Vincent W. Foster, Jr., committed suicide because he was depressed. I composed my “Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression,” more than anything, because of my experience with the Foster death case. Number 15, added on August 10, 1999, is “Baldly and brazenly lie,” and it was provoked primarily by the performance of Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes when he looked squarely into the camera and stated in his authoritative baritone, “The forensic evidence shows that the fatal bullet had been fired into Foster’s mouth from the gun found in Foster’s hand and that Foster’s thumb had pulled the trigger.” With that statement he seemed to dispose with the quibbles that his guest, reporter Christopher Ruddy, had with the official suicide findings.

The problem with that statement is that it is flatly false. The forensic evidence shows no such thing. For starters, it could not show that, because the bullet discharged from that gun was never found. On top of that, Foster’s fingerprints weren’t on the gun.

“They wouldn’t just lie to us like that, would they?” you might be thinking, but they would and they do. The mainstream press is bad about it, but the FBI is consistently as bad or worse. Their specialty is lying about what they are told by witnesses when the witness testimony is not consistent with the conclusion they want to reach. They can get by with it easily because they don’t record the testimony electronically, using only handwritten notes, which they then transcribe in final typed form, and the witnesses are not permitted to review those notes for accuracy.

That is the primary way that they were able to perpetuate the myth that lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald killed President John F. Kennedy and they have used the same technique in the Foster case, the primary example being their falsification of witness Patrick Knowlton’s testimony. Now, in the wake of candidate Donald Trump’s observation earlier in the year in an interview by the primary salesman of the suicide story from the beginning, The Washington Post, that there was something “fishy” about Foster’s death, the FBI has trotted out a real whopper that a lot of people might well be buying, in accordance with the Bertrand Russell dictum.

After Trump’s statement about Foster in May, the London tabloid Daily Mail in early June ran a sensational article by American journalist and author Ronald Kessler in which he wrote that two FBI agents, Jim Clemente and Coy Copeland, said that Hillary Clinton had “humiliated [Foster] in front of White House staff one week before his death.” It was that incident, Kessler strongly implies, that pushed the depressed Foster over the brink and resulted in his taking his on life.

  1. What’s missing in all these Vince Foster murder investigations is a discussion of the role of Rahm Emanuel.
    For months before the Foster murder, Rahm and his gang had been attempting to drive FBI director William Sessions from office. This started before Rahm even got to the White House.
    After Rahm was in power, he really turned up the heat on Sessions, culminating in a visit to Sessions home on Saturday, July 17, 1993. Rahm’s goons twisted Sessions arm so hard they broke his elbow- yet Judge Sessions bravely refused to resign.
    Monday morning, William Sessions, the only decent man ever appointed to head the FBI, was fired.
    Vince Foster’s body was found in Fort Marcy park the next day.

  2. Hi Scott, I don’t know if you have read this (on Turquey). I think it is interesting. If you have, my apologies and best of luck with your good work:

    • wrong. bullshit. dead wrong.

      “We are bound to note, however, that despite appearences and the official declarations, this purge serves the common interests of the United States and President Erdoğan.(wrong)

      Indeed, Turkey is today the godfather of the world’s Muslim Brotherhood, and also their armed branch, in other words, international jihadism (pro-Israeli bullshit). From this position, on behalf of Washington, it continues to pull the strings of the «Syrian rebels», as well as Daesh (dead wrong). Unfortunately, this position is incompatible with membership in NATO.”

      Misinterpreting the US’s attempts to mediate their losses after the failed coup as some kind of “proof” that the US teamed up with Erdogan to fail a coup is patently ridiculous and bordering on pathetic propaganda from Thierry Meyssan. Were the coup to have been successful, our glorious Kurds would own half of Syria by now and Gulen would be in place in Turkey to hand them over half of that country as well. And since Condi Rice, the plan has ALWAYS been for a “new Middle East”, which, look it up, involves the creation of Greater Kurdistan.

      This is pro-Israeli propaganda, demonizing Erdogan in the so-called “alt” community so they don’t take offense at the next regime change operation when it takes shape.

      The Turkish military is being purged of the Pentagon/Locheed-Martin moles they bought and paid for over the last 20 years. Thierry would have you believe that was the PLAN of the Pentagon? To oust their moles? WTF could the purpose of that be?

      Blaming Erdogan for Israel’s and the US’s “ISIS”!?!? are you f-in stupid?

      Then Thierry goes on to repeat the often cited bullshit Israeli propaganda that says Erdogan and the AKP stole the 2015 election, which is total bullshit but it does one key thing: undermines the legitimacy of the Turkish government and the will OF THE MAJORITY OF THEIR CITIZENS

      “First of all, Washington thought it could solve the problem by changing the Turkish President. The CIA therefore supported the transformation of the HDP (the Peoples’ Democratic Party, representing the minorities, mainly Kurds), but this party lost the elections of November 2015, which were massively faked by the AKP [1].”

      The link they provide as a reference tracks back to a Voltaire.net article translated by someone and posted on the site without sourcing the orgin of that article. I guess they did that because they didn’t want their readers to know which political slant the original was created under (was it an Israeli publication to start with? Fox News? don’t know since they didn’t provide a link)

      This is total sock-puppet bullshit. Sorry, but it is. And it’s OBVIOUS.

      Aside from that, it has nothing to do with Vince Foster.
