Where’s the Press on Vince Foster’s Death?
For now, America’s mainstream Fourth Estate is ignoring the latest story about the violent death of President Bill Clinton’s deputy White House counsel, Vincent W. Foster, Jr. That is the one about Congressman Trey Gowdy (R, SC) getting a federal judge to have Foster’s body exhumed and examined. In this case, there’s good reason why they should ignore it because it’s made up out of whole cloth. It was obviously created to lend credibility to the idea, ginned up by our rotten press in the first place, that the Internet information alternative to the propaganda that they put out is nothing but a steaming cauldron of unsupported rumor and nonsense.
What we are witnessing here is quite simply the latest variation of #4 in the Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression, “Knock down straw men.” Here’s one way it’s done, as we said back in 1998: “Make up wild rumors (or plant false stories) and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.” And, sure enough, right in the wake of this newly minted fake news, along comes the propaganda press’s favorite debunker, the depraved Snopes to perform the ritual:
Foster took his own life on 20 July 1993, and the circumstances surrounding his death in part formed the basis of long-circulating conspiracy theories that Clinton associates were often found dead under mysterious circumstances. Foster’s death was ruled a suicide in multiple investigations.
The claim about Gowdy’s purported order was picked up by several dubious sites, but there is no truth to it; the story originated with The Last Line of Defense (The Resistance), an openly fake news outfit…
Behind all this “fake news,” according to the shameful propagandists masquerading as truth-telling journalists, is nothing more than the desire to make money by selling popular myths, the truth be damned. That ploy falls under #6 in the Seventeen Techniques, “Impugn motives.” The motives of the people originating this new phony story might well be impugned, but not on the basis that they are merely chasing after filthy lucre.
Real Vince Foster News
Such knavery may be contrasted with what motivates the genuine truth-seeker in the Vince Foster case, Hugh Turley, and it has motivated him from the beginning. He shares the web site Vince Foster Murder Cover-up with the key critical witness in the case, Patrick Knowlton and Knowlton’s lawyer John Clarke. It is the definitive source for truthful information about Vince Foster’s death. Turley has been involved in this endeavor for quite some time, as revealed by the email he sent me this week:
In November of 1994, Paul Harvey broadcast a comparison between the press reporting of the O.J. Simpson murders and Vincent Foster that I had sent to him. Harvey’s producer told me it was one of the most requested transcripts of his broadcasts. My comparison was also republished in many small-town newspapers that ran Paul Harvey’s opinion column. Unfortunately it contained two errors promoted by Christopher Ruddy, that Foster was “left-handed” and that a paramedic had found the body in another location. Ruddy had confused west with north in his reports. – Hugh Turley, March 26, 2017
Where’s The Media On Foster Death?
Television, radio, movies and print media are talking about everything these days -- except one thing.
Anybody can speak his piece on sick sex, infidelity, specifics of birth control, lesbianism, homosexuality, adultery, polygamy and pornography.
Daytime talk shows lick their lips at rating time over stories relating to a Chicago carnivore who raped, killed and ate young boys. Cutting off a man’s penis was a favorite topic for a while.
It’s difficult to imagine in this atmosphere that there is one topic the media can’t seem to handle.
But there is one.
It appears nobody dares question the murder/suicide of White House aide Vincent Foster.
Hugh Turley has revisited Fort Marcy Park several times. He has also read in tedious detail the case against O.J. Simpson. He assembled a compelling comparison:
O.J. Simpson: There is a public hearing.
Vincent Foster: There was no public hearing (shhh).
O.J. Simpson: The media tell us everything, with updates on the hour.
Vincent Foster: The media and White House tell us nothing. The facts are kept from the public.
O.J. Simpson: Plenty of photos are displayed of gloves, the murder scene, a Bronco, and even a live televised flight in the Bronco.
Vincent Foster: Only one photo leaked to the press by the government. It shows Foster’s hand with a gun. One photo tells the public a one-sided story.
O.J. Simpson: No murder weapon was found.
Vincent Foster: No bullet was found. In fact, the gun had only two bullets, and no other bullets were found at Foster’s home. Maybe he just bought two.
O.J. Simpson: Nicole Simpson died unexpectedly after eating a full meal.
Vincent Foster: Foster died “expectedly” after eating a full meal.
O.J. Simpson: O.J.’s estate is still intact.
Vincent Foster: Fort Marcy Park reopened after a facelift. There was new sod and cleared brush, even one of the two cannons was gone. Vince wouldn’t know the place.
O.J. Simpson: Nicole’s eyeglasses were found next to Goldman’s body.
Vincent Foster: Foster’s eyeglasses “mysteriously bounced” 13 feet from his body in dense foliage.
O.J. Simpson: X-rays were taken of the victims by a medical examiner.
Vincent Foster: No x-rays were taken. The coroner said, “Our machine was broken,” although he did check off “X-rays completed” on the autopsy report.
O.J. Simpson: The victims’ blood was everywhere.
Vincent Foster: Parts of his skull and brain were missing. No skull bone fragments were found from a “one-inch exit wound”--even after sifting the soil to a depth of 18 inches.
O.J. Simpson: Plenty of fingerprints, footprints, and blood drops were found.
Vincent Foster: No fingerprints were on the gun, except one, but it was not Foster’s. Did Foster wipe the gun clean after he shot himself to throw suspicion away from himself?
O.J. Simpson: Los Angeles police used experienced homicide investigators.
Vincent Foster: An inexperienced park officer -- someone with no homicide experience -- served as the lead investigator.
O.J. Simpson: O.J. wrote a note.
Vince Foster: A note appeared in Foster’s bag for the White House, yet it wasn’t there when Park Police searched the bag. This note was torn into 27 pieces with no fingerprints.
O.J. Simpson: Tests were conducted on hairs found at the crime scene.
Vincent Foster: No tests were done on the blonde or brown hair or fibers found on Foster’s pants, undershirt, socks and other clothing.
O.J. Simpson: O.J. was unaccounted for during the time of the murder for less than one hour.
Vincent Foster: Foster was unaccounted for from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. For five hours his activities are unknown.
O.J. Simpson: Testimony was taken under oath.
Vincent Foster: [Special prosecutor Robert] Fiske and investigators questioned no one under oath.
O.J. Simpson: Blood at the scene flowed downhill.
Vincent Foster: Blood on Foster’s face flowed uphill. These dried blood tracks disprove Isaac Newton.
O.J. Simpson: Detailed crime scene photographs can be seen daily on television.
Vincent Foster: Oops! It’s too bad crime scene photos were “underexposed” in the Park Police labs.
O.J. Simpson: He drove a white Ford Bronco.
Vince Foster: A mysterious white van, a Mercedes, and a dark car were involved. We don’t even know how Vince Foster got to Fort Marcy Park.
O.J. Simpson: Police investigators searched O.J. Simpson’s home.
Vincent Foster: White House aides searched Foster’s office -- and then lied about it.
O.J. Simpson: Los Angeles police investigators keep a detailed list of items taken fro the crime scene and O.J.’s house.
Vincent Foster: Items removed from Foster’s office by White House staff remain a closely guarded secret.
O.J. Simpson: Investigators questioned neighbors.
Vincent Foster: Neither the Park Police or Fiske investigators questioned the many neighbors around the park.
O.J. Simpson: Witnesses who discovered the bodies came forward on television and we know names.
Vincent Foster: The workman who discovered Foster’s body has never been named.
O.J. Simpson: The murder weapon may yet be found.
Vincent Foster: Luckily, a gun was found (by the police) in his right hand (he was left-handed) -- even though the workman told the FBI there was no gun in Foster’s hands when he found the body.
O.J. Simpson: Defense lawyers complain about sloppy police work by Los Angeles detectives.
Vincent Foster: Not a single complaint about sloppy police work in the Foster investigation.
O.J. Simpson: No one disputes the victims’ bodies were found in front of Nicole’s gate.
Vincent Foster: An ambulance worker found Foster’s body on the west berm. Fiske said police found Foster’s body 200 feet away on the north berm.
O.J. Simpson: No one disputes who was the first emergency worker to come upon the victim’s bodies.
Vincent Foster: Sgt. George Gonzalez, the lead paramedic, said he was first on the scene of Foster’s body. Fiske’s report said a Park Police officer was the first to find Foster.
O.J. Simpson: We know why articles from O.J.’s house are held by Los Angeles police as evidence.
Vincent Foster: We do not know why articles from Foster’s office were delivered by White House aides to the White House private residence as ordered by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Turley might have mentioned that when he wrote that piece he had been deceived not just by the scoundrel Christopher Ruddy but also former FBI agent and Watergate figure, G. Gordon Liddy, who brought forward on his radio show the anonymous “workman who discovered Foster’s body.” We have since learned that the man was the late Kermit Dale Kyle, and his story of how he stumbled upon the body while in search of a secluded place to take a leak is frankly preposterous.
