Daniel Halper Outlines Defensive Tactics Preceding Clinton, Inc.’s Publication

Clinton, Inc.On the publication date of Daniel Halper‘s Clinton, Inc., the author penned a piece for POLITICO Magazine on what’s happened and can be expected for he and others who white “a tough book on the Clinton family.” Ten days prior, Halper’s latest was leaked to the press, as a combined 317-page PDF distributed to more than 100 reporters by a mysterious “Robert Josef Wright.

“Some prominent media personalities with experience covering the Clintons in the 1990s told me that their team would have no problem with, say, copying every page of someone’s manuscript, sending it out to reporters ahead of publication, and then depicting it as a right-wing smear job. Funny thing, that exact thing happened with my book, as POLITICO noted,” Halper writes in the piece.

From blacklisting media who give airtime to Clinton enemies to efforts to turn Halper into a “kook or right-wing hit man,” The Weekly Standard’s online editor outlines four tactics used by the ‘Clinton PR machine’ against anyone who’s agenda doesn’t coincide with that of the Clintons.

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 17.25.28On Snoop Dogg’s official YouTube channel GGN - the Double G News Network – the rapper recalled, with guest Jimmy Kimmel, a visit to the White House in which he smoked weed in the bathroom. The “Gin and Juice” singer was most recently at the White House in December 2013.

“I said, ‘May I use the bathroom for a second?’ Snoop recalls asking ‘the CIA or FBI,’ which he referred to as ‘the alphabet boys.’ They supposedly followed up by asking him, ‘‘What are you gonna do, Number 1 or Number 2?’ ” to which he answered ‘Number 2.’

He went on to add, “So I said, ‘Look, when I do the Number 2, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or light something to get the aroma right.’ And they said, ‘Well you know what? You can light a piece of napkin.’ I said, ‘I’ll do that.’ And the napkin was this,” as he smokes a blunt on camera.
