This series analyses the 2016 presidential campaign with recaps of Alex Jones Show interviews with Larry Nichols, a Clinton insider from Arkansas days, terminally ill with cancer, and Roger Stone, Trump insider and veteran of five presidential campaigns beginning in 1964. See parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 if you missed them.
Nichols co-created the 1994 film The Clinton Chronicles and Stone co-authored The Clintons’ War on Women, published in 2015.
Part 14 featured former White House travel chef Tracey Martin.
These final two posts — part 16 will conclude the series — feature highlights of interviews with Gary Byrne, a retired Secret Service agent who guarded the Clinton family in the White House. There is also another interview with Roger Stone in this post. He came on after Byrne.
Byrne’s book, Crisis of Character, about his time in the Secret Service went on sale on June 28, 2016. The Daily Mail published excerpts of it soon afterwards.
Although the book has the Clintons on the cover, according to readers’ reviews, much of the book is actually about the Secret Service itself and Byrne’s personal experiences as an agent.
On June 30, Alex Jones interviewed Byrne. As per usual, he told listeners that the interview would start right after the commercial break but instead gave a five-minute editorial about that day’s news.
So, this is what was happening on June 30. The media had stopped playing soundbites from Donald Trump’s speeches. Jones said he would start airing them. He surmised Trump was attacking Hillary Clinton and the media did not want that getting out.
He said that the Trump campaign had hired Ron Paul’s pollster. Paul Manafort was the campaign manager then. Many of these internal polls showed Trump neck and neck with Hillary. The results of one matched Rasmussen’s that day.
He also pointed out that Google had adjusted their search engine algorithm to suppress negative searches on Hillary.
In other news, Jones mentioned the schoolboy in southern New Jersey who was enjoying an end of term party with his classmates and, referring to the treats on offer, said ‘brownie’ (emphases mine below):
After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment.
The police officer spoke to the student, who is 9, said the boy’s mother, Stacy dos Santos, and local authorities.
Dos Santos said that the school overreacted and that her son made a comment about snacks, not skin color …
The boy’s father was contacted by Collingswood police later in the day. Police said the incident had been referred to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency. The student stayed home for his last day of third grade.
Dos Santos said that her son was “traumatized,” and that she hopes to send him to a different Collingswood public school in the fall …
Her husband, the third grader’s father, is Brazilian, dos Santos said.
Honestly, you could not make it up. Poor child.
Gary Byrne then went on air. He began by saying he wanted the American public to know that Hillary is ‘very angry’ and ‘a dictator’ — her true self — who berates people. He experienced that himself.
She has no problem telling other agents to ‘f’ off — using the full word. She even threw a Bible at one of them. He said he has told Fox’s Sean Hannity some of the same anecdotes.
Byrne said he wanted:
people to know the truth … what the real Hillary Clinton is like.
Byrne said that if Hillary were a private citizen, he never would have written the chapters about her. However, as she is running for president and stood a good chance of winning, the story needed to come out. He has followed her career for over 20 years, some of which time he also served at the White House.
He told Jones that his original plan for the book was to call it Fence Jumpers to Hijackers. The 2016 presidential election changed the book’s final tone and content.
Although he said Hillary was always nice to him, that was not always the case with his colleagues.
He recalled that, many years ago, a new agent greeted her with a courteous ‘Good morning’. She responded by telling him to ‘f’ himself. Senior agents discussed the incident with the new officer. The same thing happened again, and the incident was similarly investigated. Senior officers were distraught, because the new addition to their team had been awarded a Purple Heart for his military service. They apologised to him profusely. They felt very badly for him. She never knew how deeply she had hurt the new agent and his colleagues.
Jones said he had heard from his sources that the Secret Service avoid looking Hillary in the eye.
Byrne said that he left the White House detail when W took office, at which time he got a transfer to the Air Marshals. For this reason, he could not comment on the Clintons after that point in time. The Clintons receive lifelong Secret Service protection.
Byrne was troubled by the fact that Hillary could run for president while being under investigation by the FBI. How could that be allowed to happen?
Byrne also expressed concern about possible risks to himself now that the book was published. He said that:
a lot of weird things
took place in the Clinton White House.
Hillary could get very:
He wondered if:
she can function normally.
When Jones asked Byrne if he thought Hillary could blackmail him for the book, Byrne said:
She’s never genuine
and said she is always
very angry for some reason.
Things turned for the worse for her after Benghazi, he said.
Byrne told about the time when he was protecting the George H W Bush family at the White House. Bush went to Arkansas. Byrne accompanied him on that trip to Little Rock. While there, he struck up a conversation with a member of the Clintons’ security detail. The man told Byrne that the couple were trouble personified and related several stories about Billary. The man also pointed out:
They could turn manure into gold.
In closing, Byrne said that if Hillary won the White House, Americans could expect more socialism (his word).
Roger Stone came on afterwards. The day before, June 29, he posted an article at Town Hall, ‘Would the Gipper Endorse the Donald?’ Stone concluded that he would and offered a lengthy analysis as to why.
He told Jones that both men were political outsiders, even though Reagan had been governor of California. Both, he said, are known for their ‘larger than life’ personalities and ‘fighting’ spirit, then added:
Trump is a brawler.
Stone told the story of Reagan meeting Trump in the box seats at Yankee Stadium. Reagan suggested Trump run for governor of New York. (He never did.)
Conversation turned to the Clintons. Stone said that Jerome Corsi was finishing a book on the Clinton Foundation, which details how the family uses the funds for themselves.
Incidentally, the book, Partners in Crime, was published on August 2, 2016. During the summer, an agent or agents known as FBIAnon gave several ‘ask me anything’ interviews to the 4chan /pol/ community. FBIAnon, involved in the Clinton investigation, said that Corsi has the best insight as to what is going on and recommended the book. I have posted three of the FBIAnon interviews before the election; these posts, Parts 1, 2 and 3, are highly popular among my readers.
Like Jones, Stone also noticed that the media had dropped Trump’s soundbites. He posited that CNN did not want to see Trump succeed.
That said, Stone pointed out that, in our digital age, Trump would get huge video coverage, which he did. RSBN broadcast all his rallies. Other YouTube videos exist of his interviews.
Jones asked if Big Media were ‘self-immolating’. Stone replied that they do not see that their power is quickly diminishing. They not only have fewer viewers now, but Trump’s command of social media was allowing him to reach millions more people than conventional media:
He gets it.
At this point in the race, everyone fretted that Trump wasn’t spending enough money. Stone correctly pointed out that the hundreds of millions of dollars that Trump’s opponents spent in the primary had no impact:
Money is not going to decide this race.
enough money, not tons.
As we know, this also turned out to be true in the presidential campaign. Hillary spent twice what Trump did, and who won?
The president elect has a certain genius about him in going against conventional political wisdom.
