Last week, Hillary Rodham Clinton called for an end to the international
trade in prostitution, which she likened to slavery, at a conference on
women and democracy in Reykjavik, Iceland.
The senator-in-waiting decried a system that allows girls to be lured
from home with the promise of jobs, "trafficked like drugs across state
lines and sold into prostitution."
"We are working to stop trafficking of women and girls in this region
and around the world," she said. "No government and no citizen can rest until
we stop this modern form of slavery, protect its victims and prosecute
those who are responsible."
Someone should point out to Hillary that she will not be taken seriously
on such matters as long as she continues her close association with one
of the kingpins of the international slave prostitution trade, Ng
It would be interesting to find out from her what she thinks "we" --
presumably she and her co-president -- are doing to stop the trafficking
of women around the world. During their time in the White House, Ng, a
notorious prostitution and drug lord from Macau, has visited the White
House 12 times. The co-presidents have posed for photographs with him.
He has often sat at the right hand of the Clintons at White House dinners.
This is a man, by the way, who, besides his involvement in prostitution,
dabbles in heroin trafficking, arms smuggling and murder-for-hire. His
prostitution empire is known for abducting very young women and girls
from villages throughout Indochina.
Why would an international criminal familiar to law enforcement
officials at state, national and Interpol levels be welcomed repeatedly
at the Clinton White House? How could a man with this kind of
reputation even get close to the president of the United States? How
could he have received clearance from the Secret Service? Easy. He introduced large sums of cash into the coffers of the Democratic
But that's old news -- reported by Edward Timperlake and William
Triplett II in their excellent book, "Year of the Rat," and pointed out
frequently by WorldNetDaily columnist and staff writer Charles Smith,
who connects the names and the dots better than anyone writing about international intrigue in the Clinton era.
What's new is Hillary's audacity. You would think that if international
prostitution was a genuine concern, she would have slammed the door in
the face of this pimp -- no matter how much money he funneled into the
Democratic Party. But no. I guess she only opposes prostitution when it
is organized by Republicans or by those who don't pay the political
She might have mentioned that in Reykjavik. But pointing out her own
hypocrisy probably would not have prompted the standing ovation she
received from the 300 delegates from around the world -- people who
actually believe Hillary Clinton cares about women.
Obviously she's still fooling people. She is talked about as a serious
candidate for the U.S. Senate in New York, a state she has visited
occasionally. While no one any longer truly entertains the notion that
Bill Clinton believes in anything other than his own empowerment,
many still believe Hillary is sincere.
If she is sincere, please explain to me how she can make noises about
international prostitution, claim she is doing something about it, and
continue to roll out the red carpet for one of the biggest offenders in
the world? I would really like an explanation for that. Maybe someone
will ask her out on the campaign trail.
Some day Bill and Hillary Clinton are going to pay a price for this kind
of behavior. I've got to believe there's a special little corner of Hell
reserved for people who wrap themselves in the garments of compassion
while accepting alms from those who oppress, exploit, rape, murder and
Hypocrite is too kind a word to use to describe this kind of behavior.
Hillary has got to be part of the new aristocracy of hypocrisy -- right
along with her good friend Ng Lapseng.
