The Supreme Court is awfully busy these days with low-tar cigarettes and movies – too busy it seems to chat about whether barry is eligible to be president. They’re looking at the “movie” Hillary and yet Justice Scalia doesn’t recall Orly Tait’s Lightfoot v Bowen case that he had supposed conferenced. What exactly has Danny Bickell done? I know I read something somewhere that he admitted he was a barry fan. Not that it isn’t obvious.
David Bossie was hired as chief investigator for the Whitewater hearing and was then fired at the insistence of Newt Gingrich, who found that Bossie had demanded that certain film be edited so that it portrayed Clinton staffer Webster Hubbell in a negative light. Scumbags being scumbags. He went ahead anyway.
Remarks that indicated Hillary Clinton did no wrong were left out of the initial release. In several instances the transcripts did not match the actual recordings, and these errors seemed almost willful, as if they were intended to unfairly implicate Hubbell and the Clintons.
His organization Citizens United inspired Rep strategist Roger Stone to establish the 527 group Citizens United Not Timid which of course means nothing other than CUNT. And you can figure out who it was directed at. These beasts have a lot of imagination, don’t they?
Bossie was caught in his own hypocrisy when he went after Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911 as violating McCain-Feingold (this is x and I approve this message) and then tried to use Hillary: The Movie during the election. And in a very sweet revenge of castration anxiety he told Politico last June:
We spent 18 months and millions of dollars making ‘Hillary The Movie,’ We’re incredibly proud, but the problem is the film has no relevance anymore.
Hillary Clinton was out before he even got to release it. Foiled again.
The progression of the case:
After the project was denied the right to advertise its eventual release Bossie and Citizens United brought suit in federal court in Washington, D.C., arguing that the film (released Jan. 16, 2009) was exempt from McCain-Feingold restrictions on advertising since it was not released to influence the outcome of a particular candidate or election. They also argued that the free speech of Citizens United had been infringed upon. Ultimately the federal court ruled against them, issuing the opinion that the 90-minute film “is susceptible of no other interpretation than to inform the electorate that Senator Clinton is unfit for office, that the United States would be a dangerous plance in a President Hillary Clinton world, and that viewers should vote against her.” Upon appeal, the case reached the Supreme Court of the United States.
The issue before the Supreme Court: whether campaign-reform laws unconstitutionally restrict ads for political documentaries. Is it just a nasty documentary or is it what it is: a political attack ad that has to be regulated by campaign finance laws.
Justice Stephen Breyer:
It’s not a musical comedy.
Justice Anthony Kennedy:
If we think that the application of this to a 90-minute film is unconstitutional, then the whole statute should fall.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
Just for example, it concludes with: These are things worth remembering before you go in potentially to vote for Hillary Clinton. Now, if that isn’t an appeal to voters, I can’t imagine what is.
When questioned about the 22 previous decisions they’ve made on McCain-Feingold, John Paul Stevens responded:
Maybe those cases presented more difficult issues than this one.
Justice Scalia focused on the First Amendment:
Not only would the government be preventing the movie’s producers from getting their movie out, they would be blocking someone who specifically wants to see that movie from getting it. Isn’t that a heightened First Amendment?
Ginsburg countered that they never made that argument before the lower court, so they can’t really consider it now.
Dick Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton who is now a Clinton critic said Hillary Clinton is:
the closest thing we have in America to a European socialist.

Just look at this crazy effer. It’s a movie about “Hillary” and he puts his constipated, castration anxiety-enraged, gyne envy face on it. Looks like somebody’s squeezing his micronads with a Hillary nutcracker.
