Andy Martin: Monica Lewinsky may be the most powerful woman in America today
U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin says Monica Lewinsky may be “the most powerful woman in America today.” Andy says Monica could single-handedly bring down Hillary’s presidential campaign by raising questions about Hillary’s integrity. Andy feels Monica is to be commended for coming forth with her interview of experiences in the Bill Clinton White House. Andy has “the talk” with New Hampshire Republicans and says the GOP need not fear an honest discussion of Hillary Clinton’s fractured personal history. Andy also speculates about the accuracy of claims that Scott Brown may have personal problems of his own in Boston.

(Manchester, NH) (May 8, 2014)
Dear Republican and New Hampshire citizen:
Today we are going to have “the talk.” If you are embarrassed reading about or discussing “sex,” please read no further.
1. My history in Washington
When I went to the Illinois General Assembly as an intern many years ago, I learned about “Springfield wives.” Legislators would hire “farm girls” and turn them into concubines so that they would have sex readily available during the legislative sessions. Not surprisingly, the legislative sessions became longer and longer over the years. Similar practices exist in other state legislatures. It’s repugnant behavior.
When I went to work for a U. S. Senator I knew he did not have a girl friend. I knew because I was his driver for several months. I can still remember the street number of his home address and his phone number, after all these years. But my senator was a close private friend of President Johnson. Their friendship was to alter the course of my life. And, unavoidably, I also came to find out about President Johnson’s girl friends. One name still sticks in my mind.
I have been in and out of Washington over the past forty-nine years. And I helped out investigating more than one congressional sex scandal. Remember Representative Wayne Hays? I do. And so it goes.
Ordinary men and women go to Washington after being elected in their home states as senators and representatives. The Capitol allows them to think of themselves as gods. Staffers, especially young women, treat them as though they are gods. Scott Brown was not immune to an inflated sense of self-importance. During the 2012 campaign Brown famously told Massachusetts voters that he (Brown) met with “kings and queens” every day. Wow!
Is it any surprise that sexual escapades take place in the charged atmosphere of Washington? No surprise to me. I have seen it all.
And it is equally true that recent college graduates, both men and women, think they know it all. Men and women go to Washington seeking power. And, as former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once stated, “Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” But it can be a very capricious aphrodisiac.
2. Lewinsky’s tragic encounter with Bill Clinton
Recently a book was published by a New York socialite who wrote about being seduced, and ultimately abandoned, by President John F. Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was the ultimate seducer. Senator Ted Kennedy? Say no more. Others? The list is long. Remember Representative Gary Condit? Senator Gary Hart?
Thus Lewinsky’s “encounter” with Bill Clinton came as no surprise to me. What was surprising was that Clinton chose to debase the Oval Office and satisfy his sexual appetite right in the heart of the peoples’ house. I have learned about and looked into a lot of sex scandals but Clinton’s was about as coarse and despicable about any imaginable.
And, yes, Monica is right. The sexual encounter was “consensual.” Why would an impressionable young woman turn down the importunations of the president? It was a genuinely disorienting experience. Monica may have flirted with Mr. Clinton. But all of us flirt a little, every day. But we don’t expect our kind remarks and harmless banter to result in a stranger taking us into a closet and demanding sexual satisfaction.
Lewinsky was literally “in the moment.” She obviously had no idea what could happen, and did happen, because she lacked any Washington experience.
Lewinsky didn’t expect Hillary Clinton to unleash her dogs. But Hillary was experienced at destroying Lewinsky’s predecessors. Hillary started demolishing Monica’s character and mental state with relish. Bill Clinton had an experienced sexual response team to protect him: Team Hillary.
Hillary’s behavior and her unhinged state of mind remind me of the movie about unwed mothers that were tortured by Irish nuns. Hillary was the Irish nun par excellance; Monica was her “pregnant” charge. The results were not surprising.
Because the Clintons are political psychopaths, they shred peoples’ lives with impunity and spit them out with immunity, with no more than a passing glance. Monica was just “road kill” for Hillary. Hillary had killed off a lot of “Monicas” before Monica, and Hillary has probably killed off “Monicas” after Monica. Indeed, if you look deeply into Freud, Hillary’s glee in butchering Bill’s paramours was a perverted form of satisfaction for Mrs. Clinton.
Bill didn’t commit just one mistake in an otherwise admirable marriage. The Clinton marriage itself was nothing more than a political sham.
3. Bill Clinton is a sexual predator
Bill Clinton and I both came of age in the 1960’s. The social construct that had hitherto existed started to crumble with the arrival of “the pill” and other contraceptive methods. Many young people were in rebellion. Suffice it to say I know the era in which Bill Clinton came of age.
Knowing Bill Clinton’s “era” is what makes me so amazed at his relentless behavior as a sexual predator. Clinton was not just a seducer, à la Jack Kenney. Bill Clinton was an exhibitionist, rapist and manifested all sorts of other aggressive sexual action. If Clinton had merely romanced a real “girl friend” in the White House, and slipped away to somewhere on Connecticut Avenue for an occasional assignation, no one would have ever known about any of his “Monicas.”
But Clinton was not satisfied with women his age. With Clinton, “sex” was about power and domination, not about sex. His infidelity was as much about inflicting pain on Hillary as it was about providing pleasure to himself. Bill took on all comers. He was an indiscriminate predator.
Monica was young enough to be the president’s daughter. Clinton exercised no caution, no self-restraint, no self-respect. And then he lied. He was the living embodiment of a psycho-sexual predator. He was the embodiment of evil.
Whatever was “wrong” with Clinton hasn’t disappeared into the ashcan of his former life. Bill may suppress the “monster” aspects of his personality, as Hillary has suppressed her “monster” tendencies. But their flawed characters are merely hidden beneath the surface of their smiles. To return Bill to the White House, even as First Husband, would probably reopen his floodgates to more sexual infidelities, more embarrassments and more emotional abuse of the now-President Hillary.
Who needs this? After eight years of Obama?
4. Ron Paul did the Republican Party a service
Ron Paul did the Republican Party a service: he raised the issue of Monica Lewinsky in the context of the Democratic Party’s hypocritical attacks on Republicans for a fallacious “war on women.” Senator Paul was attacked by other Republicans for even uttering the words “Monica Lewinsky.” On the contrary, Senator Paul should be congratulated for raising the issue of the “fitness” of both Clintons to ever again reside in the White House.
It is clear that Hillary Clinton is a deeply conflicted and deeply repressed woman who has had to swallow all of Bill’s infidelities in her relentless crusade to be elected president in her own right. But can’t we look back at how she acted and reacted when she lived in the White House? Do we have to put on blinders as to her firing of the travel staff, her abusive treatment of workers and the way she orchestrated and directed the character assassination of every woman who had “sexual relations with that man?”
It is not enough to say that what happened between the Clinton’s is a private matter. Our experience with eight years of the Clintons confirms that how we live our private lives has a direct impact on how we deal with our public responsibilities, and how we conduct ourselves under stress. In a famous 2008 TV commercial, Hillary Clinton confronted candidate Obama about the potential for a “3:00 A.M. telephone call.” But when that “call” ultimately arrived on September 11, 2012, Clinton botched her response to the Benghazi challenge. Obama? He went to bed and hid under his sheets.
The fact that Hillary Clinton has spent forty years “privately” internalizing Bill Clinton’s infidelities is a matter that almost every psychologist would concede is an important factor in assessing her personality now that she is approaching another presidential campaign. Character is formed and informed by experience; Hillary Clinton has been experiencing infidelity and emotional /physical/ sexual denial for forty years.
5. Where do we go from here?
When the news broke that a major new Monica Lewinsky interview was coming this week both liberal and “conservative” media went into full conniption mode. Lewinsky is a disruptive factor in a potential presidential race. The Clintons want to forget and erase their “history,” and focus exclusively on their plans for the “future.” But the reappearance of Monica Lewinsky forces the Clintons to confront the “character” issue. When and how and why did Bill become a sexual predator? He was almost certainly a predator before his marriage to Hillary Rodham. After he married her his abusive behavior was even more pronounced.
And how did Hillary’s emotions and her psyche survive forty years of emotional abuse? Many psychologists would say that emotional abuse — especially sexual emotional abuse and compulsive philandering – would inflict much more damage on a spouse than mere arguments over the family budget. Hillary is an emotionally abused and emotionally beaten woman who has endured forty years of extreme emotional and psychological torture. We are told this is all part of her unquenchable ambition to be elected president. That’s doesn’t change the “content of her character.” Or her emotional unsuitability to serve as president.
In her highest office to date, Secretary of State, Hillary was totally ineffective (more on that in a future letter). Ironically she ended up serving under another emotionally damaged and unbalanced male though, thankfully, Barack Obama does not appear to be a compulsive womanizer (see my 2007 psychological profile of Obama for a chillingly accurate prediction of how ineffective Obama would be in the White House; it’s in my book [below] and on the Internet).
6. The Bottom line: Monica Lewinsky is a courageous woman
Monica is now 40. Her life has obviously been scarred by her encounter with Bill Clinton. But her life has been scarred as much by Hillary’s character assassination as Bill’s infidelity. Monica has apologized for her poor judgment. Hillary Clinton never has. Will it take a presidential campaign to pry loose the truth from Hillary’s “cold, dead heart?” Thanks Monica; no thanks Hillary.
Actually, today Monica Lewinsky, not Michele Obama, may be the most powerful woman in America. If Lewinsky returns to “silence,” the Clintons may pull off their latest scam and use their daughter as a stage prop to masquerade as a happy family during the 2016 campaign.
But if Monica continues to speak, ever so softly, but with the compelling truth of her unbelievable narrative, she could single-handedly bring down the Clinton presidential campaign and put an end to America’s “long national nightmare” with Bill and Hillary.
Monica, are you up to the task of being a truth teller, whatever the cost and whatever the price you personally have to pay? Time will tell.
And as for Republicans, all they have to do is stand by silently and roll their eyes.
In my humble opinion a nation that would return the Clintons to the White House is a nation that has taken leave of its senses and lost all sense of its national honor.
P.S. “Hey, Andy, what about you?”
If you send me to Washington, there will not be any sex scandals in my office. None. Period. I have not led a perfect life. No one has. But I have learned enough through life to know what should be expected of a public official. As for the reports about Scott Brown having a girl fiend, we will have to see how that plays out. Mr. Brown has shown extremely bad judgment in other areas of his life. It would not surprise me if he has to confront a “bimbo eruption.” There are elements of Scott Brown’s and Gail Huff’s marriage that remind me of the Clintons.
