About Those Rocky/Hillary Chats...

By Billy Cox


When the super-rich seek you out, there's a tendency to overlook
their darkest quirks, for obvious reasons. Even in a worst-case
scenario like John du Pont.

A good decade before his 1997 conviction for shooting Olympic
gold medalist wrestler Dave Schultz to death during an eruption
of clinical paranoia, neighbors and acquaintances knew the heir
to the DuPont chemical fortune was a case-study wingnut.

Du Pont indulged all manner of bad craziness, pulling guns on
people, driving cars into ponds and even, one Christmas Eve,
grinding an armored tank onto adjoining property. His face
bloody from getting swatted by the tree branches in his path, du
Pont then asked a neighbor lady if her husband "could come out
and play?"

The neighbor lady was one of the few who said no. After all, du
Pont was renowned for spreading the wealth around, most notably
to Villanova University, where he helped build a new gymnasium.

Deep pockets make a lot of people look the other way for longer
than they otherwise might. Few are immune. Not even the White

If the Presidential candidates who tended to laugh off UFO
questions last month represent mainstream America - and let's
say they do, just for argument - then it might be perceived as a
little dangerous for a chief executive to huddle with someone
advocating the declassification of the officially nonexistent.
No matter how rich he or she is.

But, as a growing body of documentation indicates, that's
exactly what billionaire Laurance Rockefeller did during the
first term of the Clinton administration, through the Office of
Science and Technology Policy. And lately, thanks to the efforts
of Canadian UFO investigator Grant Cameron, National Archives
photos of Rocky's meetings with Bill and Hillary Clinton are
adding visual confirmation of those meetings - online at:


The particulars of the first lady's chats with the late
philanthropist remain a mystery. And that's largely because the
MSM has apparently exhausted its shallow capacity for UFO
interrogatories. Even if pressed, the Clinton camp would likely
dismiss those Rockefeller sessions as "wide-ranging discussions”
with a harmlessly eccentric old buzzard.

More puzzling to Stephen Bassett is the way Republicans have
held their fire on the senator from New York on this issue.

As a registered lobbyist, Bassett has been pressing for
disclosure hearings on Capitol Hill for 10 years. But in the
sludge-spattered theater of politics as entertainment, where
UFOs still pose a juvenile stigma for anyone urging an adult
conversation, Bassett says it's odd that no conservatives have
elected to prod Clinton with the latest revelations from the
National Archives, which are dispensing free ammo for anyone
wanting to frame Laurance Rockefeller as Hillary's John du Pont.

"You have to ask yourself why?” Bassett says. "Limbaugh, Beck,
Hannity, not a peep from any of them. All it takes is one right-
winger, like Ann Coulter, who's not on the talking points to
take a shot at Hillary as the UFO whacko, and we're in play. But
that hasn't happened. Why's that?”

That's another whole riff altogether.
